The Pittsburgh offense has had a good trip to Coors Field so far this weekend. The Pirates notched an 11-8 win in Thursday’s series opener and took a 7-3 lead into the 7th inning as of publishing on Friday.
Oddsmakers are expecting another high scoring affair on Saturday night as they’ve set the total at 13.5. Pittsburgh has won 5 of 7 heading into Friday night’s game with a 14, a 9, and an 11 run scored performance over that span.
Joe Musgrove is the starter on Saturday, hoping to be the beneficiary of another solid offensive day. Musgrove has had some stinkers as of late, giving up 5+ ER in 3 of his last 7 games.
The Rockies close out August to be just one month away from their nightmare 2018 campaign being over with. The Rockies have already checked out with losses in 7 of their last 8 games heading into Friday night’s tilt.
Colorado is 2 games over .500 at Coors Field on the season. The Rockies are 1-6 in their last 7 vs. RH starters though. Charlie Blackmon has especially struggled lately posting just a .172 average over his last 7 games.
The Rockies are -105 for Saturday night’s contest (PIT -116) which means oddsmakers have at least a little bit of respect for Tim Melville. The Rockies starter is making just his 3rd appearance with the club but so far so good 1ER allowed in 12 IP.
