Pittsburgh has really struggled this season and comes into this matchup on a four game losing streak. Pittsburgh is currently third in the NL Central and is 12.5 games behind the Brewers for first place in the division. Colorado has won five games in a row, but is still sitting fourth place in the NL West and is 17.5 games behind the Dodgers. Pittsburgh hasn’t announced their starting pitcher yet, but their team ERA is one of the worst in baseball. Colorado is starting Austin Gomber, who has allowed eight runs in his last 16.2 innings pitched. I am taking Colorado to win this game and expect them to win by a few runs, but the over is also worth a look, depending on the number.
