Pittsburgh Pirates vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

The Rockies haven’t found a whole lot of success this season, and it’s going to be no different in this game. At times Jones hasn’t gotten a ton of run support, but he will get plenty of it here. Blach sits with an ERA of 4.84 and in his last start he gave up four runs. The Pirates are going to have no issue running up the score and this game is going to get out of hand early. Back the Pirates on the money line.
