San Diego at Pittsburgh

2 units on Pittsburgh -1.5 runs +163 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Pirates have been a .600 team in their last 40 home games with a 25-15 record. They have also been on a bit of a run lately where they have now won their last four by outscoring the opponent 34-13. Zack Duke has not pitched well lately, but over his career has been a much better pitcher than Cha Seung Baek, where the Padres have amassed a 3-6 road mark in his nine starts outside of San Diego. The Padres are a bad team playing poorly with just one win to show for their last 10 games. In their last 17 losses the Padres have gone down by two runs or more in 13 of them, and in 24 of their last 33 on the road. We like the Pirates to come away with another easy win over the Padres.
