The Diamondbacks are a perfect 3-0 this year at home, while the Pirates are a rough 1-5 on the road. That being said, we do think that this is a good spot for the visitors to be in on Monday night. Joe Saunders did just hurl seven scoreless innings against the Padres at Safeco Field in his last start, but he still really doesn’t have the splits that we are looking for in a pitcher. His ERA should have been a lot higher than 3.69 last year, especially with 29 homers allowed, just 108 strikeouts, and 67 walks over 212 innings of work. Erik Bedard is a tough luck 0-2, as he should have two quality starts under his belt. There isn’t much pressure pitching for the Pirates, and we think that Bedard is going to get back to being a winning pitcher against at some point in the near future. Look for him to get more than just one run of support as he has over the course of his first two games combined, and he’ll get his first win of the year in the desert over the D’Backs.
