The Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates will meet on the field at PNC Park on Tuesday in a battle of division rivals.

The Reds will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Homer Bailey in this game. Bailey has a 2-5 record and a 8.37 ERA this season.

It’ll be Jameson Taillon toeing the rubber for the Pirates in this contest. Right hander Taillon is 6-4 with a 4.03 ERA so far this season.

Bailey sustained his third straight loss on Wednesday after allowing seven runs on 10 hits – including nine singles – in a 9-5 setback at the New York Yankees. The 31-year-old has permitted 17 runs during his losing skid (16 innings), but perhaps a trek to PNC Park will be just what the doctor ordered to turn his fortunes around. Bailey has posted a 5-2 mark with a 2.58 ERA in nine career starts in Pittsburgh – including a no-hitter on Sept. 28, 2012.

Taillon endured the worst start of his career on Tuesday, surrendering 10 runs on nine hits in three innings of an 11-3 shellacking at San Francisco. The run total eclipsed the 25-year-old’s sum total of his previous five starts, during which he yielded eight runs over 27 2/3 frames. Taillon’s previous season-worst outing came in Cincinnati on May 3, during which he was shelled for six runs on eight hits – including two homers – in a 7-2 setback.

Oddsmakers currently have the Pirates listed as 167-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Andrew McCutchen has been flexing his muscles with five of his last six hits leaving the park. Fresh off his third career three-homer performance, McCutchen looks to continue the power surge on Tuesday as the Pirates begin an eight-game homestand with the opener of a three-game series versus the Cincinnati Reds.

McCutchen belted three solo shots in Sunday’s 7-1 rout at San Diego, snapping Pittsburgh’s four-game losing skid while giving the five-time All-Star and 2013 National League MVP five homers, nine RBIs and seven runs scored during his last six games. The 30-year-old has two homers and is batting .286 versus the Reds this season, and that average elevates to a robust .311 in 45 career at-bats versus Tuesday starter Homer Bailey. While Pittsburgh resides 5 1/2 games behind first-place Chicago in the NL Central, cellar-dwelling Cincinnati found a rare ray of sunshine on Sunday after snapping a six-game skid with a 6-4 victory over Miami. The reeling Reds won for just the third time in 17 outings, although they have emerged victorious in six of the seven meetings versus the Pirates this season.

Pittsburgh was a 7-1 winner in its last match on the road against the Padres. They won as -151 favorites, while the total score of 8 made winners of UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Cincinnati, they were a 6-4 winner as they battled the Marlins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Reds at -117 were rewarded, while the 10 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
