Last picks: Pirates vs. Indians under 8 runs = WIN (5-1 final score)       Record: 5-2
                 Padres vs. Twins under 7.5 runs = WIN (1-0 final score)

Pirates (Karstens) vs. Indians (Masterson) UNDER 8 RUNS

Jeff Karstens has a very good 2.66 ERA on the season. He has allowed 3 runs or fewer in all of his last 10 starts and allowed 2 runs or fewer in 9 of them. He is on a personal 13.2 scoreless inning streak after pitching shutout performances against the Astros and Diamondbacks. In his last three starts, his ERA is 0.44. Justin Masterson has a respectable 3.16 ERA on the season. He has a 3.25 ERA during home starts and a 3.48 ERA in his last three starts. The Pirates having serious issues scoring runs as they have scored two total runs in their last 3 interleague games, with one of the two runs coming last night. Both teams have good starting pitchers and decent bullpens, which should let this game easily go under. BET UNDER 8.
