            Play #1:

            905 PIT/STL OVER 8 -105 (rom Pinnacle) Taillon/Mikolas listed.

            Game goes tonight at 7:15 local time/5:15 Pacific.

            Taillon was pegged as the ace of the Pirates rotation after beating testicular cancer last year, but he’s been wildly inconsistent so far. The Pittsburgh pen has been the biggest dumpster fire in the league the last 2 weeks and Taillon has averaged less than 5 innings per start since April 19.

            Mikolas has been for the most part lights out for the Cardinals, but he has faced the Pirates twice so far this season, giving up a total of 6 ER in 13 innings, so it’s not like the Pirates can’t score when he’s on the mound.

            Will be an extremely hot/humid day in the Lou as well, so the ball should be carrying.

            BOL to all today.

              As a dedicated UNDER bettor, I always fear division games where the hitters have a decent read on the pitchers.

              Last night's game at Busch ended with 18 runs on 26 hits and four errors.

              I'll root for more of the same tonight.

              Good luck, EJD.

                Pirates top 3 in NL in most major offensive categories, all while playing in a pitcher-friendly park and with their best lefty (Polanco) in a protracted slump. Meadows got the night off last night and should be back in the lineup tonight. I believe this is the first time he will have faced a pitcher for the second time so it will be interesting to see what adjustments are made.

                Give Neal Huntington some credit. He knows that the only real power alley at PNC is the Clemente wall in right and right center, and he’s rebuilding accordingly. Despite the bullpen’s struggles, they are way ahead of pace.

                      Thanks guys. Hopefully it’s not a duplicate of my best bet thread performance.

                        Turns out it’s the Cards pen that I need to implode. Taillon super sharp and inducing tons of soft contact (read: low pitch count.)

                        Ugh.....

                          I never had a chance in this one. Just gotta tip my cap to Jameson Taillon. Pinpoint command all night and did a great job of mixing up his pitches and keeping hitters off balance, which induced a ton of soft contact and made for an extremely efficient outing.

                          Some notes:

                          -The Cardinals are NOT a plus defensive unit by any stretch of the imagination. This was starkly illustrated in the 5th inning when Frazier and Cervelli both hit triples that should have been doubles. Fowler straight up dogged it on Frazier’s ball hit down the right field line, and Ozuna misplayed Cervelli’s ball off the wall in left. (NO WAY should anyone not named Billy Hamilton or Dee Gordon wind up with a triple off the left field wall in any ballpark under any circumstances.)

                          Unfortunately the Pirates were only able to scratch one run across in that inning.

                          -I didn’t realize Mikolas was 6-0 coming into this game. That stat alone will fool a lot of square bettors, but the syndicates had this one pegged the whole way. Money came in on the Pirates from the opening of the books this morning all the way up to first pitch.

                          Mikolas pitched well, but is starting to have some command issues pop up that we hadn’t seen until his last couple starts.

                          -Polanco is showing signs of coming out of his funk. 1 for 4 tonight with a double but I really liked his approach all 4 times up. That offense is going to go on a tear against RHP if he gets hot and they can find more playing time for Meadows.

                          -And IMO they HAVE to find a way to get Meadows in the game every time against righties until the league adjusts. The kid has the look of a generational talent.

                          -Your National League leader in OPS from April 10th until today? How about Francisco Cervelli? You could have given me 5 guesses and he would have been nowhere near my radar.

                          On to tomorrow...
