The fans at PNC Park will be treated to a game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Pittsburgh Pirates when they take their seats on Thursday.

The Reds will give the ball to starter Sal Romano in this one. Right hander Romano is 2-2 this season with a 4.57 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Chad Kuhl who starts for the Pirates. Right hander Kuhl is 3-7 with a 4.84 ERA so far this season.

Romano saw his pitch count elevate rapidly on Friday after allowing six walks in 3 2/3 innings of a no-decision at Miami. The 23-year-old issued three free passes in the first inning to load the bases before striking out the side to end the threat. “You can’t defend walks,” Romano said. “I’m not really giving up the extra-base hit or hits, but I’m putting guys on with free passes and there’s just no excuse for that.”

Kuhl also had issues with his control on Friday as he walked five batters in 5 1/3 innings of a no-decision at San Diego. The 24-year-old otherwise has pitched well in his last 11 outings, but only has a 2-2 mark to show for it despite registering a 3.72 ERA. Kuhl has limited experience against the current roster of the Reds, save for Scooter Gennett (1-for-6).

Oddsmakers currently have the Pirates listed as 155-moneyline favorites versus the Reds, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Cincinnati Reds rookie outfielder Jesse Winker has put his best foot forward in his bid to have an extended stay in the majors. Recalled from Triple-A Louisville prior to the series opener, the 23-year-old has homered in back-to-back contests heading into Thursday’s finale against the host Pittsburgh Pirates.

Adam Duvall also went deep for the fourth time in seven games overall in Wednesday’s 5-2 victory, improving to 12-for-34 with three homers, 11 RBIs and seven runs scored versus Pittsburgh this season. Like Duvall, the rest of the Reds have run roughshod over the Pirates as the cellar-dwelling club owns a resounding 8-1 mark against Pittsburgh this season and a paltry 36-62 record against everyone else. The plummeting Pirates have dropped six of seven to reside 6 1/2 games behind first-place Chicago in the National League Central. Andrew McCutchen is 3-for-7 in the series and is 8-for-16 with four homers, five RBIs and six runs scored in his last five games.

The Pirates were a 5-2 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Reds. That made winners of bettors who got Cincinnati at 153 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Cincinnati, they were a 5-2 winner as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Reds at 153 were rewarded, while the 7 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
