JT Brubaker (2-2, 2.63 ERA) - Brubaker has begun to break out in his sophomore season. He leads the Pirates' regular rotation (min. two starts) with a 2.63 ERA, though he was struck by some bad luck and shaky defense in a three-run outing Friday.
Yu Darvish (3-1, 2.13 ERA) - Darvish has been the Padres most reliable starter this season, having reeled off five straight outings of at least six innings while allowing one run or fewer. In franchise history, only Andy Benes has ever done so in six straight starts.
With Brubaker and Darvish on the mound I think this matchup sets up for a defensive game and runs will be a premium. This total is low for a reason, so playing the unders and slight lean on Pittsburgh as the value play here.
