Pittsburgh is home, but has to face Phillies ace lefty Cole Hamels (5-5, 3.19 ERA). The Phillies are 5-2 in Hamels' last seven starts, as well as 42-19 when Hamels faces the NL Central. Hamels improved to 3-2 in his career versus Pittsburgh on May 13 after yielding two runs in seven frames while matching a season high with nine strikeouts in a 3-2 triumph. Philadelphia is 4-0 when Hamels faces a team with a winning record, as well as 4-0 when Hamels is an underdog of +110 to +150. Pittsburgh's offense is 19th in runs scored, 18th in OBP, and 21st in slugging. The Pirates go with 38-year old A.J. Burnett, and the team is 7-15 when he faces a team with a losing record. The Phillies are also 4-1 when Hamels starts on the road against a team with a winning record, making this a great spot for the live dog. Play Philadelphia.
