The Pirates will make their way to Coors Field on Monday night as they get ready to take on Colorado in a three-game set that could have postseason implications. The Pirates coursed above .500 winning percentage to re-enter the postseason discussion, while Colorado are just 2.5-games behind the Braves for the final Wild Card spot in the National League.
- Rockies are 0-4 in their last 4 overall.
- Rockies are 0-4 in their last 4 games vs. a right-handed starter.
- Pirates are 5-1 in their last 6 road games.
- Pirates are 12-3 in their last 15 vs. a team with a winning record.
Rockies lefty Kyle Freeland is struggling with his control; he’s walked three batters in each of his past three starts. But overall he’s 6-2 with a 2.45 ERA at Coors Field — eye-popping numbers. In my simulations, the Rockies are winning 71 percent of the time. Back Colorado on the money line.
Prediction: Colorado Rockies
