The projected starting pitcher for Colorado is Antonio Senzatela, who is 0-1 with a 1.80 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP over 5.0 innings pitched this year.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are 21-16 this season and they have lost eight of their last nine games. Pittsburgh won Game 1 of this series by a score of 2-0 on Monday. The Pittsburgh pitching staff has a 3.87 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .247 opponent batting average.

Colorado is 7-2 in their last 9 games and 7-19 in their last 26 Wednesday games. The under is 4-1 in Colorado’s last 5 Wednesday games. Pittsburgh is 6-2 in their last 8 games against the NL West and 1-8 in their last 9 games. The over is 15-5-1 in Pittsburgh’s last 21 Wednesday games. Colorado is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.
Pittsburgh has really struggled over their last nine games, but they have a chance at a series win in this matchup at home. On the other side, Colorado is playing their best baseball of the season. The Rockies will start Antonio Senzatela, who allowed one earned run over 5.0 innings against the Mets in his first start. The Pirates will turn to Rich Hill, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts. Rich Hill has been inconsistent this season and even though he has pitched well lately, he could blow up in any appearance. I think we are going to see a good amount of runs in this game and I am taking the over.
