The cure for a slumping offense is facing the Pittsburgh Pirates. Their pitching has allowed a league leading 180 runs. That’s a bit unlucky according to BaseRuns, which says they should have allowed 167, which is still awful. Really, really awful. That’s 6 runs allowed per game for those of you scoring at home. While their pitching staff has underperformed expectations, expectations weren’t that high to begin with.
I’m going to just cut to the chase since the game has already started, but I think we all know what to expect.
