Baseball on ESPN : One Way Trends
Pirate baseball (33-35) has been taking a pounding on two fronts. In terms of overall record, this is not how the fans envisioned things as progressing in Pittsburgh. Secondly, the Cubs have been using them as cannon fodder. 7-1 is Chicago this year against them. They have built a 14 game lead over their rival in the NL Central. Tonight, the Pirate task is made more difficult by a pitcher who savors throwing at Wrigley. Hendricks is a mid three ERA overall but at home he slices that to a 1.99 level. This helps reinforce two powerful trends that are the staples of making profit on the Cubs this season.
Chicago is 42-3 when they score four runs or more. Combine that with a 30-4 tally when they cross the plate first and tonight does not look good for Pittsburgh. Young pitcher blessed with talent but in a hallowed stadium. National television audience in an arena with really hungry fans. 1-9 in their last ten are the Pirates. It is amazing that the ML is not +200 on the Pirates considering all that is surrounding this game.
Quality atmosphere tonight. Chicago (46-20) is only 6-4 in their last ten. Cubs are in the middle of a homestand while this is the last game of a very rough road trip for the Pirates. Sweltering conditions in Chicago will prompt more power. Skip the Cubs ML and go straight for the big score. Cubs – 1 1/2 is where your speculation should be at.
