Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cincinnati Reds 08/07/2021
The Pittsburgh Pirates find themselves nearly at the bottom of the American League at 41-69 and are seven games above the league’s worst Arizona Diamondbacks. They also need to pick it up as they trail the Miami Marlins by seven games as well. It is not good for them that they bring a three-game losing streak and two of those came from the Cincinnati Reds. The latest game was a shutout, 0-10. JT Brubaker had six strikeouts in five innings but he also gave up two home runs while reliever Kyle Keller also gave up one homer. Pirates may have to tank the season to get a good chance at the rookie draft.
