Gerrit Cole rediscovered his dominant form and did it against a pretty good lineup, at that. He shut down Colorado over seven innings, allowing just one run, and pitched his team to a 5-2 win at PNC Park.
Tony Wolters recorded two of Colorado’s four hits in the game and drove in one of the runs. Trevor Story singled home a fairly meaningless run in the ninth inning before it became final.
Tyler Chatwood was nearly as good as Cole. He gave up just one run in six innings but the bullpen couldn’t hold up its end of the bargain. Adam Ottavino and Jordan Lyles each gave up two runs in their inning of work.
German Marquez will start the third and final game for Colorado, which is hoping to avoid a sweep.
Andrew McCutchen hit his 10th and 11th home runs of the year and drove in three of Pittsburgh’s five runs. Jordy Mercer did the rest with his two-run homer in the seventh.
Chad Kuhl starts for Pittsburgh on Wednesday.
Kuhl almost always gives his team a chance, depending on how strong the Pirates are that particular year. He is just 1-5 this year after going 5-4 last season, putting up fairly similar numbers. His ERA, WHIP and BAA are all up a little this season but not enough for such a stark contrast.
A normal start for him is five innings with two, three runs allowed. It will be up to the Pittsburgh offense and bullpen to win this one.
