WIN

ANALYSIS: Boston is starting unpredictable veteran Rich Hill, but he has been much better on the road as proven by his 3.42 ERA. The Pirates have now lost five straight games, and are only 6-17 post-ASB. In the last month, the Pirates have the worst batting average and second worst OPS. Roansy Contreras has been pretty solid, but this is will be his first start in the majors since July 7th. I think the Red Sox have more to play for in terms of wild-card contention, so I'll back them on the money line.
