- The Pirates' offense has been red hot, and they've won 11 games in a row.
- Pittsburgh starter Jameson Taillon has been excellent in the last two months, as well.
- But Indians starter Trevor Bauer should return to form at home and keep the score low.
I wish they all came as stress-free as last night’s soothing Twins-Blue Jays Under 8.5 triumph. The reality is it’s always a grind, especially when your next game is just hours later. Let’s now move onto Wednesday for an afternoon game in Cleveland.

I’m not sure it’s possible to whet my appetite more than having a matchup of two top ‘Zylbert Guys’ while in quality form. The two right-handers going at it in this series finale definitely fit the bill.
Taillon, you may recall, was one of my top three sleeper choices entering the 2018 season — and I’ve been so invested in the 2010 No. 2 overall draft pick that I’ve taken more of his over/unders than any other pitcher (6-3 record).
