Both teams come in off offensive explosions on Sunday and will look to keep things going with the bats inside Coors Field on Monday night.
The Pirates were on the beneficial end of the shootout on Sunday as they grabbed a win over Arizona while the Rockies coughed up a giant lead against the Dodgers in the 9th.
The Pirates gave up 2 runs in the 8th and 2 in the 9th as they coughed up a 4 run lead and then once again blew a lead in extra innings, only to come back and secure a win an inning later. Pittsburgh’s offense has been working all season long as they put up 5 runs per contest.
Pittsburgh has won 7 of the last 8 meetings with the Rockies and have dominated at Coors Field. They’ve taken the last 5 inside the Rockies home stadium, as the hitters ballpark has been a phenomenal sight for the Pirates.
The hitters friendly ballpark may not be a welcoming sight to the struggle Jeff Locke. The LH is 0-2 with an ERA that sits above 7 on the season. In just 3 innings of work last time out, Locke allowed 8 runs on 11 hits against a Padres offense that isn’t all that talented. It was easily the worst start of his career and he’ll look to rebound in a place where he has a 5.00 ERA in 3 starts.
Colorado came all the way back from a 7-1 deficit against the Dodgers on Sunday, only to blow a 3 run 9th inning lead in a back and forth crazy game. Coors Field can produce these types of games as it’s a hitters ballpark where the ball flies.
Colorado is just 4-5 SU at home this season. The Rockies have scored 6.22 runs per game while conceding 8.00. While their pitching has been suspect all season long, Chad Bettis will take the rubber on Monday, who has been one of their most consistent starts of the season.
Bettis is 2-0 on the season with a 3.33 ERA. He will pitching on regular rest after Jorge De La Rosa was pushed back with a stomach bug.
Bettis is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in 4 career appearances against the Pirates.
