Money Line: -122 Pittsburgh
New York Mets at Pittsburgh 7:05 ET
Pirates over Mets- Neither of these two clubs are expected to be a contender come September but both have been a mild surprise to date hovering around the .500 mark with the Mets two games over and the Pirates two games under. On the mound for both squads will be their most effective pitchers as the Mets send R.A. Dickey (5-1, 3.75 ERA) up against Pittsburgh's James McDonald (3-2, 2.68 ERA) who has strikeout 44 batters in his last 34.2 innings over his last five starts. The Pirates are 6-2 in McDonald's last eight starts and the Mets have lost eight of Dickey's last 11 starts against the NL Central. Take PITTSBURGH!
