The Pirates and Rockies continue their weekday series with Game 2 of their set on Tuesday night.
The Pirates will send out their ace while the Rockies look for some consistency from their starter.
The Pirates know they’re in for another fight this season in the NL Central.
Pittsburgh was on the wrong end of the division last year that saw them finish behind the Cardinals, leaving them to deal with Jake Arrieta and the Cubs in a one game playoff.
The Pirate have seen the Cubs race out of the gate, making every game that much more important here in the month of April.
Pittsburgh will send out Gerrit Cole to the hill. Cole brings in just a 1-2 record on the season, but was on the unfortunate end in one of his losses.
Cole does come in off a blowout win, as he was spotted 11 runs as he went 6.0 innings allowing 0 runs.
Cole has faced Colorado just once in the past 3 years, going 0-1 as he allowed 3 runs in 5.1 innings of work.
The Rockies certainly don’t have many expectations this year, but if their offense can continue to produce, who knows what could happen.
Colorado has averaged 5.5 runs per game and that number even goes well above 6 at home. With the likes of Carlos Gonzalez and Nolan Arenado in the middle of the lineup, this Rockies team can be extremely dangerous.
Pitching will be the biggest key for them and thus far, it’s failed them. De La Rosa has continued to be pushed around the rotation over the past week as he has been battling a flu bug.
The time off may serve him well as he comes in just 1-2 with an ERA of 9.87 on the season. He lasted just 2.0 innings last time out against the Reds, allowing 6 hits and 4 runs.
