PITTSBURGH (125)

Cole Hamels has allowed two runs in 18 innings since joining the Cubs, but Trevor Williams has allowed only two runs in his last 29 innings, not counting a one-run, six-inning victory at Wrigley earlier in the year. And the Pirates have historically gotten to Hamels, batting .337 against him as a team. The offenses have have had similar production lately, but with the game at PNC and the price, Pittsburgh is a good flyer.
