We moved 3-0 on these the moneyline in both and the complete at one of both and previewed two of Pittsburgh matches. Let’s just cut to the chase and say we are going to pick against the Pirates back on Thursday as they open a four-game show from the thin air of Denver against the Colorado Rockies.
By April 16-18, the Rockies won two of three and visited with Pittsburgh. Both teams were back then. Both are very likely to finish there and in their branches.
Perennial Rockies NL MVP candidate and third baseman Nolan Arenado had. Ian Desmond and Daniel Murphy were every 4-for-10, with five being homered and rapping in by Murphy.
Pittsburgh was directed from the series by Josh Bell, that was 5-for-12 with two homers, three RBIs and four runs scored. Stellar rookie Bryan Reynolds had been 2-for-6 having a homer and four RBIs.
Reynolds is battling to become the first rookie ever to win the NL batting title (it’s happened twice in the American League). Paul Waner using 35 holds the club rookie record for doubles in one season at 1926 and Reynolds should break this.
Colorado is well below .500 general but has a winning record at Coors Field. However, the Rockies dropped two of three and are just 12-17 in the home this past decade from the Pirates. The Rox haven’t swept a home series vs. Pittsburgh since 2013 and have been still trapped in 2015.
The Rockies are rather slim with outfielder David Dahl and starting pitchers German Marquez, Jon Gray, and Kyle Freeland around the injured list. Gray is performed for the entire year and Marquez is.
