These two teams played a low-scoring game on Tuesday, and we expect that to happen again on Wednesday afternoon.

The Pirates and Mariners will be up bright and early on Wednesday afternoon as the two teams wrap up a short 2-game series. AJ Burnett is 3-2 with a 2.57 ERA this season leading the National League with 57 strikeouts. He has allowed just 7 runs and 18 hits in four home starts with three of those games going Under the total. Burnett faced Seattle twice back in 2011 giving up just 4 runs and eight hits in two starts while striking out 17 batters. Seattle has scored just 3 runs in their last two games and they haven’t put up double digit hits yet in any of their four games on their current road trip. They are hitting .223 in day games and not much better versus right-handed starters this season. The Pirates’ bullpen has an ERA under 3.00 on the season and they continue to be a strength.

Felix Hernandez is 4-2 with a 1.60 ERA giving up just 1 earned run in his last three starts. The righty has struck out 51 while walking only seven with five of his seven starts going Under the total. Brandon Inge (4-22), Russell Martin (3-17) and Travis Snider (1-9) have seen Hernandez the most and have had the least success. Pittsburgh is hitting .248 in the daytime as a team, and they’ve scored just 13 total runs so far in their mini homestand. These two teams played a low-scoring game on Tuesday, and we expect that to happen again on Wednesday afternoon.

The Reds are poised to bounce back from Monday’s 4-7 loss to Atlanta. Cincinnati will send out Homer Bailey, who has been lights out at home in 2013. Bailey is 1-0 with a 0.90 ERA and 0.850 WHIP in his three starts at Great American Ballpark. Most importantly, the Reds are 3-0 in each of those starts. The Reds also happen to be a perfect 3-0 when Bailey takes the rubber against the Braves, two of which have came at home.

Atlanta will counter with Kris Medlen, who has struggled to the tune of a 5.40 ERA and 1.637 WHIP in his last three starts. All of which have resulted in losses for Atlanta. Medlen simply hasn’t found his groove early on and it’s hard to expect him to find it against a potent Cincinnati offense that is hitting .264 and averaging 5.4 runs/game at home this season.
