The Pirate pitching hasn’t been the best in 2019 giving up a lot of homers. They have an ERA of 6.75. They are 9th in league with highest ERA for are team. The pirates have their batters to help them win a ball game. If the pirates hitters can keep up the hot streak the pirates will have a decent season but probably won’t make the postseason.
The main job of a pitchers is to limit the runs of the other team so your players don’t have to work as hard to win the game. If the pitcher doesn’t do his job the other players will have to work twice as hard to win the game. The year is still young the ERA can still end up going down as the year goes through.
