These teams are fighting each other to keep out of the basement in the NL Central. Nothin has yet been decided as they have split the first two games of this series. This looks to be a tough spot for the Pirates. Since taking their opening road series of the season two games to one in Atlanta, they have managed to win just one other series on the road all season. Although they have been tough at home, their road woes continue at 14-25. John Van Benschoten has not supplied much hope for a struggling team on the road, as his only start vs Atlanta he was gone after four innings and seven runs. He has allowed 20 baserunners in just 8.2 innings of work. This is a good spot for the Reds, who have played winning baseball at home to grab the win in this one.
