Pittsburgh Pirates vs Colorado Rockies (By: Mulder)
RHP DuRapau will start for the Bucs. Worked from the 'Pen basically this season so he should not go deep. I like his stuff though: 1.35 ERA, 12.15 K/9 with even a better 0.83 FIP (!).
Pirates bullpen 12th this season in advanced stats.
For the Rox Rightie Jon Gray will start on the mound. He is 3-4 with a 4.73 ERA. He has pretty solid K-power ( 9.96 K/9 ) and a better 3.66 xFIP.
Besides, the Bucs score only 3.76 runs per game this season and in the last 7 days they are hitting a .283 wOBA ( 23th ).
The Rockies are, when they do not play at their own Crazy Coors Field, not a good hitting team as they hit just a .282 wOBA, ranked 28th (!).
-Under is 15-6-5 in the last 26 meetings in Pittsburgh.
Hence taking my chances with the under.
