The starting pitcher for the Pirates is up in the air, but it looks like it might be Roansy Contreras, who has not started a game this season and was solid out of the bullpen in early April. For the Rockies, Kyle Freeland is coming off of a quality start against the Giants, where he went 6 innings and gave up 3 runs. Prior to that start, Freeland allowed 6 runs over 4.2 innings against the Royals. As a team, Pittsburgh is at the bottom of the league when it comes to hitting and pitching, while the Rockies are a much better hitting team. The over is worth a look, depending what the number is, but I like the Rockies to bounce back and get the win here.
