The Pittsburgh Pirates and Colorado Rockies face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Coors Field. 

The Pirates come into this game with a 38-52 record overall but on Thursday the offense struggled and they were defeated 3-2 by the Miami Marlins. The Pirates offense has been a big issue all season averaging 3.67 runs per game which is 28th in the league. Bryan Reynolds has been a key player this season hitting 15 home runs and driving in 32 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rockies who sit with a 41-49 record overall but they are coming off three straight wins against the San Diego Padres. On Thursday the offense had another big game putting up eight runs, and that led to the three victories. The Rockies overall are averaging 4.54 runs per game which is 11th in the league. C.J. Cron has been the top offensive player hitting 20 home runs and driving in 68 RBIs.

On the mound for the Pirates is Jose Quintana who sits with a 2-4 record and an ERA of 3.59. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, he went 4.1 innings giving up six hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Rockies is German Marquez who sits with a 5-7 record and an ERA of 5.66. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Marquez went seven innings giving up three hits and two runs. 

The Rockies are 5-1 in their last six home games. The under is 5-0 in the Pirates last five games following a loss. The under is 4-0 in the Pirates last four during game 1 of a series. 

Marquez is coming off a start where he pitched pretty well, but overall this season he has struggled, and I don’t think he is going to find a ton of success against the Pirates bats. The Rockies are going to struggle against Quintana who sits with a 3.59 ERA. There is a ton of value with the Pirates as underdogs.
