Pirates And Reds Wrap Up Series In Cincinnati

Sunday's Major League Baseball action includes the Cincinnati Reds wrapping up their weekend series with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

First pitch from Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati is at 1:10 p.m. (ET), and the Reds will send Homer Bailey to the mound against AJ Burnett. Don Best is sending the odds out as a pick 'em with the total at eight and shaded to the 'under.'

We start with Pittsburgh and the unbelievable career that Burnett is enjoying with the surprising Bucs. His season got off to an inauspicious beginning when he bunted a ball into his face during spring training and missed the first few weeks due to a fractured orbital bone. The Pirates have lost just three of his 19 starts, each of those defeats on the road. That includes a horrible performance at St. Louis in his third start of the season when he allowed 12 earned runs without making it through the third inning.

"Burnett's been great," said Don Best sports analyst Kenny White. "Fastball, curveball guy. His curveball, he has great command of it. He's been able to get that curveball over in any count this year, and that's why he's been so effective."

Burnett is coming off a near no-hitter that he lost with two outs in the eighth inning at Wrigley Field on Tuesday, having to settle for a 5-0 shutout against the Chicago Cubs. He has won both of this starts vs. Cincinnati this season, allowing just three earned runs in 12 innings pitched.

Bailey (9-6, 3.85) has the Reds into the winner's circle each of his last six assignments, though his most recent trip to the bump was a bit ugly. The Padres scored six times against Bailey in his 3-2/3 innings on Tuesday after the Cincinnati lineup staked Bailey to a 6-0 lead. The Reds pulled the game out, however, with a 7-6 win over San Diego.

Don Best analyst Pat Williams is hanging an asterisk on that game after Bailey allowed just six earned runs in his previous five starts. He will be going for a career-best 10th win on Sunday.

Bailey faced the Bucs in back-to-back starts on May 29 and June 5, tossing a complete game 4-hitter in a 6-1 win at Pittsburgh and then getting roughed up at home when he lasted three frames and allowed six runs in an 8-4 setback.

Kenny White believes this is a tough game to call, but says he will back Burnett "until he completely falls apart."

Sunday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Streaking

Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle Mariners (2-2, 4.10 ERA)

The Japanese product is settling into his role as a starter, allowing only four earned runs in his last 19 innings of work. He’s 1-0 in that three-game span and coming off his best performance as a starter, giving up one run on four hits while striking out 13 batters in a win over Toronto Monday.

A.J. Burnett, Pittsburgh Pirates (13-3, 3.27 ERA)

Burnett continues to enjoy a career resurgence in the Steel City, bringing a three-game winning streak into Sunday’s start in Cincinnati. The righty has proved he can win on the road as well, with his last two victories coming away from Pittsburgh. Burnett allowed only two runs on five hits with 13 Ks over 16 1-3 innings in those starts, dropping his road ERA to 4.79 – compared to just 2.00 at home.

Kyle Lohse, St. Louis Cardinals (11-2, 2.91 ERA)

Lohse’s efforts this season are making Cardinals fans forget all about Chris Carpenter. The right-hander brings a 5-0 record in his last seven into a Sunday Night Baseball matchup with the Brewers. His last start wasn’t pretty, allowing five runs in the thin air of Coors Field, but he earned the “W” and recorded 10 straight quality starts before Tuesday’s 11-6 win over the Rockies.

Slumping

Ricky Nolasco, Miami Marlins (8-10, 4.90 ERA)

The Marlins righty has lost four straight starts and has just two wins since June 8. Nolasco has been beat up in his most recent efforts, allowing 18 runs in his previous 21 2-3 innings of “work” heading into Sunday’s showdown with Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg. While Nolasco hasn’t been sharp in those losses, Miami has provided a total of only five runs of support in his previous four starts.

Sunday Night Baseball: Brewers at Cardinals
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals (-145, 9)

It's a National League Central battle as the Cardinals host the Brewers Sunday night.

LOHSE ON POINT

Kyle Lohse is 11-2 with a 2.91 ERA for the Cardinals this season. He ended July with his worst start since May, although it was in Coors Field which can be forgiven.

Lohse is ranked third in the National League with 16 quality starts this year. The Cardinals’ starter faced Milwaukee back on April 28 and gave up three runs and six hits in six innings, striking out five while walking four.

Lohse had an amazing streak of 10 starts from June 4 to July 25 where he allowed three earned runs or more just once. Lohse has allowed 12 HRs this season, but he's been able to pitch around those.

MARCO OH NO

Milwaukee’s Marco Estrada is still looking for his first win of the season. He threw seven strong innings against Houston Monday, allowing just two earned runs, but it wasn't enough for the victory.

He has made 12 starts with eight of them resulting in no-decisions. Estrada was on the losing end of Lohse's win on April 28, giving up five runs and seven hits in six innings. He struck out two and walked two while giving up two homers.

Estrada faced the Cardinals as a reliever twice in April giving up two runs and two hits in just over three innings. Estrada’s pitch count has been more manageable in his last two starts after throwing 114 and 113 pitches in two starts earlier this month.

INJURY REPORT

The Brewers are relatively clean on the injury report, although, they would be better served if Shaun Marcum and Mat Gamel were healthy. Marcum has tightness in his right elbow while the first baseman has a torn ACL that he sustained after crashing into a wall attempting to make a catch. The team is also without shortstop Alex Gonzalez and starter Chris Narveson, who has a left rotator cuff tear.

St. Louis is without two of their major starting pitchers in Chris Carpenter and Jaime Garcia. Carpenter is done after season-ending surgery to his right shoulder while Garcia should return at some point. Lance Berkman, Rafael Furcal, and Yadier Molina are all dinged up with various ailments as well.

TRENDS

Brewers are 4-1-1 Under in their last six Sunday games
Brewers are 3-8 in Estrada's last 11 starts
Cardinals are 4-0 in Lohse’s last four home starts
Cardinals are 8-2 Under in Lohse’s last 10 starts

HITTERS TO WATCH

Ryan Braun 9-for-32 against Lohse
Aramis Ramirez 9-for-20 against Lohse
Yadier Molina 5-for-7 against Estrada
Rafael Furcal 2-for-10 against Estrada
