In this National League Central Division battle, the Pittsburgh Pirates are hosting the Milwaukee Brewers. The reason to watch this divisional matchup comes down to pitching. The Brewers (44-34) will be going with reigning National League Cy Young Award Winner Corbin Burnes (6-4, 2.41 ERA), while the Pirates will counter with Roansy Contreras (2-1, 2.76 ERA). Contreras, a rookie right hander from Peralvillo, Dominican Republic, has only given up 13 earned runs in 42 1/3 innings.

The Brewers lead the St. Louis Cardinals by one game in the division. The Pirates are in third place at 31 wins and 45 losses. Milwaukee lost the opening game of the series by a score of 8-7 on Thursday.

What can we say about the Bronx Bombers? The Yankees are the best team in baseball at the moment with a record of 56 wins and 21 losses. New York is 12.5 games up on the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox in the American League East.

The Guardians are in second place in the American League Central at 39 wins and 34 losses. They trail the Minnesota Twins by one game. Cleveland is coming off a series win over the Twins where they won three of five games. On Thursday, Cleveland beat Minnesota 5-3 thanks to a quality start by Shane Bieber.

The pitching matchup on Friday is lopsided however. Gerrit Cole (6-2, 2.99 ERA) is the Yankees starter, and Aaron Civale is the Guardians starter (2-4, 7.20 ERA). After having an excellent earned run average of 2.34 in his rookie season of 2019, Civale has tended to regress instead of progress over the last three seasons.
