The Pittsburgh Pirates are 58-77 this season and have been a disappointment so far. A big reason is their shaky pitching.
Pittsburgh has allowed the second most runs in the National League (747). Guys like Joe Musgrove (4.67 ERA), Trevor Williams (5.26 ERA), and Chris Archer (5.19 ERA) have struggled out the rotation.
The offense is led by Bryan Reynolds, Josh Bell, and Kevin Newman. Reynolds is hitting .329 with 14 homers and 57 RBIs this season. Bell leads them in power production with 34 homers and 108 RBIs. Newman has been a surprise with an average of .310.
On the mound for the Pirates on Sunday is Steven Brault. Brault is 3-3 with a 4.06 ERA this season. In his last outing he allowed three runs on eight hits in five innings against Philadelphia.
After a strong 2018 season, the Rockies have underperformed. Colorado stands at 59-77 and will miss the playoffs.
The issue has been pitching as it usually is. The team ranks second last in the league in pitching as they have allowed 806 runs. Jon Gray (3.84 ERA) has been their only reliable pitcher this season.
The Rockies offense is led by Nolan Arenado (34 homers) and Charlie Blackmon (27 homers).
Trevor Story has also been great with 29 homers and 19 stolen bases so far.
The Rockies will have Jeff Hoffman on the mound. Hoffman is 1-4 with a 7.81 ERA this season. He has been one of the worst pitchers in all of baseball.
The problem for Hoffman is that he’s allowing the opposition to bat .301.

Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction: Under
Despite Hoffman being on the mound for Colorado I expect the game to be less of a slugfest than expected. With the game being at Colorado the number is inflated, however I think it’s likely that’ll go under.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under
Look for the bullpens to pitch just well enough to keep it under.
