The Cincinnati Reds take on the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday at PNC Park in Pittsburgh for the first meeting of a three-game set. Cincinnati will have Wade Miley on the mound, while Pittsburgh will send out Dillon Peters.

This matchup of left-handers is intriguing, as both hurlers have won two of their last three starts. The Reds offense is great, ranking top 10 in the league in runs, batting average, slugging percentage and on-base percentage.

Even with their stellar marks, Cincinnati failed to score in its 2-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals last Sunday, so there is recent proof the lineup can be stymied.

Pittsburgh got an unimpressive, yet needed, four innings of three-hit ball from Peters in a 3-2 win over the Tigers on September 7. The Pirates, who are 4-2 over their last six games, have shown the ability to scrap out wins in close games as of late.

With that in mind, let's take a closer look at our latest PRO Report, which suggests Pittsburgh as a strong play.
