The Pittsburgh Pirates have been a nightmare in interleague play on the road, but have more than held their own at home. Zach Duke is still a talented pitcher capable of shutting down an opponent, but has been a puzzling enigma over the years up and down. He was impressive vs the White Sox a year ago, when he went eight strong innings allowing just two runs. John Danks, after a brilliant start, has allowed 12 runs over his last 16.3 innings covering three starts and has pitched the Pale Hose to a 1-5 mark in his last six facing a total of 7-8.5. The White Sox are now generating much offense in interleague play vs lefthanders resulting in a 7-0 mark in their last seven to the UNDER vs southpaws. The Pirates, at 14-3-2 in their last 19 as an interleague dog, suggests plays on Pittsburgh and the UNDER here.
