An MLB matchup between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Colorado Rockies will take place at Coors Field on Friday.
The Pirates enter this contest with an overall record of 38-52, but on Thursday, their offence underperformed, and they lost to the Miami Marlins 3-2. With an average of 3.67 runs per game, which ranks 28th in the league, the Pirates offence has been a major problem all season. This season, Bryan Reynolds has been a crucial player, hitting 15 home runs and accumulating 32 RBIs.
The Rockies, who are on the other side of this game, have a record of 41-49 overall but have recently beaten the San Diego Padres three times in a row. The offence had another strong performance on Thursday, scoring eight runs, which helped the team to three victories. The average run total for the Rockies as a whole is 4.54, ranking 11th in the league. The best offensive player has been C.J. Cron, who has 20 home runs and 68 RBIs.
Jose Quintana, a pitcher for the Pirates, is now on the mound. He has a 2-4 record and a 3.59 ERA. He pitched 4.1 innings in his most recent start against the Milwaukee Brewers, surrendering six hits and four runs.
German Marquez, a pitcher with the Rockies, is currently on the mound. He has a 5-7 record and a 5.66 ERA. Marquez gave up three hits and two runs over the course of seven innings in his most recent start against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
In their previous six home games, the Rockies are 5-1. In the Pirates’ previous five games after a defeat, the under is 5-0. In the Pirates’ last four series opener games, the under is 4-0.
Despite his recent strong performance, Marquez has struggled throughout the season, and I don’t expect him to have much luck against the Pirates’ hitters. The Rockies will have trouble overcoming Quintana, who currently has a 3.59 ERA.
