Starting Pitching Matchup
Connor Seabold will start for Colorado here and is 0-0 with a 5.30 ERA and 14 strikeouts this season. Luis Ortiz will get the start for Pittsburgh and is making his season debut after going 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA and 17 strikeouts last season.
Pittsburgh’s 2-0 win on Monday made it five straight wins for the Pirates over Colorado in this head-to-head matchup.
Colorado is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 30-66 in their last 96 road games while the under is 30-12 in their last 42 road games. Pittsburgh is 9-2 in their last 11 games following a win and 6-1 in their last 7 games against the NL West while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 home games.
I’m backing the Rockies here. The Pirates may have snapped their losing streak, but once again they made it a lot harder on themselves than it likely needed to be. The Rockies are still playing solid baseball over the last week, and I think they bounce back and grab themselves a win here. Give me the Rockies.
