Pittsburgh completed a sweep of Boston with a win in the last game of their series on Wednesday.

Mitch Keller (1-0) secured the victory by pitching seven innings and giving up just one run on four hits, with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts.

In his first game against the Reds on Saturday, Hill pitched five innings, giving up three runs on three hits, including two home runs, with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. The Pirates will be relying on Hill to help them maintain their momentum as they continue their quest for the top spot in the NL Central.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ last 17 games played in April.

Chicago White Sox vs Pittsburgh Pirates. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pittsburgh Pirates have an advantage over the Chicago White Sox due to having Thursday off while the White Sox played against the San Francisco Giants. This gives the Pirates more time to rest and prepare for their game against the White Sox. The White Sox, on the other hand, had to play a game and then travel to Pittsburgh in less than 24 hours. This puts more pressure on their bullpen, especially after starter Lance Lynn only pitched 4.1 innings in the previous game. The Pirates have had a strong start to the season, largely due to their pitching staff’s better-than-expected performance. In contrast, the White Sox have been let down by their pitching so far, which is disappointing. With the advantage of playing at home and a newly strengthened bullpen, the Pirates are predicted to win with a score of 7-4.
