The Pittsburgh Pirates (49-40) are just one game out of first place in the NL Central with a lot to play for in the second half. The Colorado Rockies (35-54) are in last place in the NL West with virtually nothing to play for the rest of the way.
With motivation on their side, and an edge on the mound, I’ll side with the Pirates to win at a great price tonight over the Rockies. Erik Bedard sports a 4.80 ERA this season, which is far from spectacular.
However, he has been better than Colorado’s Christian Friedrich, who is 5-6 with a 5.60 ERA and 1.56 WHIP on the season. The left-hander is 2-3 with an 8.01 ERA and 1.91 WHIP at Coors Field this year.
The Pirates are 20-6 in their last 26 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. Pittsburgh is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss. The Rockies are 1-6 in Friedrich’s last 7 starts. Colorado is 21-44 in their last 65 vs. a team with a winning record. Bet the Pirates Tuesday.
