Analysis

(3%) PITTSBURGH RL (+1.5) The Jays outlasted the Pirates in 14 innings yesterday. This is a favorable matchup for the Pirates to bounce back. Kikuchi got rocked last time out, lasting only three innings. He's got a 5.40 ERA his past three and the Jays have now lost each of his last six starts. On the other hand, Keller is off four straight quality starts, the Pirates going 4-0. In 27 ⅔ innings, he allowed just four runs, good for a 1.30 ERA. He's now allowed four earned runs or less in 12 straight starts. Kikuchi has had trouble in day games. In six afternoon starts, he's 0-2 and opposing batters are hitting .303. In what could be another close one, let's grab the extra +1.5 runs with Keller and the Pirates. *reduce to 2% if higher than -160
