Our Prediction of the Pittsburgh Pirates vs Minnesota Twins Matchup
Pittsburgh seems to be an underdog going into this game after losing their previous games.
However, their solid pitching could put them at an advantage because Rich Hill is an aging player who may flounder against a young Pirates squad.
But that does not mean that the team will do well this afternoon. So, if you want a safe bet then you should definitely stick with the Twins as they have a better chance of winning this game.
