Good night for football game, uh, baseball I mean, the temps are pretty cold and the rain always fall when the Reds hit the road to Pittsburgh. Tonight’s matchup is interesting because it’s the Pirates ace, A.J. Burnett, versus Mike Leake. Leake got rocked by a very talented Nationals team, but ended up with a No-Decision, thanks to the offense that came after his outing. Leake and Burnett have never pitched against each other, and tonight will be the first appearance against each other. Here are the predictions to be made about this game.
A.J. Burnett: 6 1/3 IP, 5 hits, double, 2 runs, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts and 1 sac fly.
Mike Leake: 5 2/3 IP, 7 hits, double, home run, 3 runs, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts and a Hit-By-Pitch.
Stay inside, drink a beer and make a fire in the fireplace tonight, because we got ourselves another night for Reds baseball.
