The Rockies aren’t a team I’m running to the window to back, but Gray has been solid this season and is trustworthy. The Pirates has also done nothing in this series, which includes back-to-back shutouts and producing just one hit last night. The Rockies have to be the pick here, as backing the Pirates and those ice cold bats isn’t an option right now.
