Start Time: April 23 2019, 7:05 PM
The Arizona Diamondbacks put a 12-4 beating on the Pittsburgh Pirates Monday night. I like the price we get on the D’Backs to make it two in a row here with right-hander Luke Weaver on the hill.
Weaver (1-1, 3.92 ERA) held Atlanta scoreless through five innings last time out. The 25-year old right-hander allowed just four hits and a walk while fanning nine. “Luke threw the ball extremely well,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. “We want each starter to build on one start to the next and continue to know that they set the tone for us.”
The Pirates turn to righty Trevor Williams (1-0, 2.59 ERA) who surrendered two runs and six hits in six innings against Detroit last time out. Williams was tagged with six runs on 11 hits in nine innings of a pair of losses to Arizona in 2018. Bad timing for him to face the D’Backs again now as their bats seem to have come alive.
Diamondbacks are 6-0 in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning record. Pirates are 1-6 in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.
