The fans at Citizens Bank Park will be treated to a game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Phillies when they take their seats on Thursday.

Chad Kuhl will be the starting pitcher for the Pirates on this day. Right hander Kuhl is 2-6 this season with a 5.26 ERA.

Kuhl’s opponent in this one will be Jeremy Hellickson. The Phillies right hander has a 4.48 ERA to go along with a 5-5 record this season.

Kuhl carried a no-hit bid into the sixth inning against San Francisco on Saturday and finished the frame having allowed a solo homer to Austin Slater to record his first quality start since April 18. “He knows what the situation is,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said of the 24-year-old. “He wants to pitch deeper into games. He put himself in a situation to do that (in his last start).” Unfortunately for Kuhl, the end result of his strong performance was a no-decision – just like his sterling effort versus Philadelphia on May 21 in which he permitted just one hit and struck out five over five scoreless innings.

Hellickson saw his winless stretch extend to eight starts after receiving his third straight no-decision in Saturday’s tilt versus the New York Mets. The 30-year-old surrendered two homers and four runs total over 6 1/3 innings in that contest, but there’s reason for optimism on Thursday. Hellickson’s last victory came at the expense of Pittsburgh on May 19 as he yielded two runs on as many hits in six innings of a 7-2 triumph.

Oddsmakers currently have the Pirates listed as 109-moneyline favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have benefited from a pair of strong starting pitching performances to post consecutive victories on the heels of a four-game losing skid. The Pirates will bid to improve their season mark to 5-2 against the host Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday when they turn to Chad Kuhl for the finale of a four-game set.

Jameson Taillon struck out a career-best nine in five innings in Tuesday’s 3-0 triumph and Gerrit Cole fanned eight in six frames the following day while also adding a two-run single in a 5-2 victory. Jordy Mercer drove in his fourth run in six games with an RBI triple to highlight his two-hit performance on Wednesday, but is 0-for-6 in his career versus Thursday starter Jeremy Hellickson. While Pittsburgh has dominated its Keystone State rival to the tune of 27-14 since 2012, Philadelphia’s Maikel Franco has fared pretty well against the Pirates this season by going 7-for-24 with two homers, four RBIs and five runs scored. Tommy Joseph collected his first career triple on Wednesday, but is just 2-for-20 in nine games versus Pittsburgh this season.

The Phillies were a 5-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Pirates. That made winners of bettors who got Pittsburgh at -152 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Pittsburgh was a 5-2 winner in its last match on the road against the Phillies. They won as -152 favorites, while the total score of 7 made winners of UNDER bettors.
