Colorado couldn’t complete the four-game sweep on Sunday, though they did get Jake Arrieta out of the game early.
Chicago’s starter couldn’t get through the fifth inning, when the Rockies scored four times and tied the game at four.
The bullpen couldn’t hold on but it’s the Pittsburgh starting rotation that will be tasked with trying to control this Colorado offense.
Charlie Blackmon has been superhuman at the top of the lineup, hitting .337 but the scary part is that Carlos Gonzalez has been in season-long slump in the three-hole.
CarGo is still just hitting .223 with a .302 on-base percentage.
Jameson Taillon will be the first pitcher Pittsburgh throws at that Colorado lineup. The second overall pick in 2010 has been out for roughly five weeks after undergoing a surgical procedure for testicular cancer.
Based on the fact that he’s back in the big leagues, it would seem that Taillon is ok and let’s all be thankful for that.
But I wonder how effective he will be after a long stretch of time off where he may have lost some strength.
The other way to look at it is that Pittsburgh will really rally around their budding young ace and play some inspired baseball tonight.
