The Colorado Rockies and the Pittsburgh Pirates will both be gunning for a victory on Monday when they meet at PNC Park.

The Rockies will trot Kyle Freeland out to the mound in this one. Left hander Freeland has a 7-3 record and a 3.21 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Pirates will be Jameson Taillon. The right hander has a 3.31 ERA to go along with a 2-1 record this season.

Freeland has worked at least six innings in eight of his last nine starts and allowed one run over 6 1/3 in a win over Cleveland his last time out. The 24-year-old is 4-0 with a 3.18 ERA in six road starts, although he has 18 strikeouts against 16 walks in those outings. Freeland surrendered at least one home run in five consecutive appearances after serving up just one in his first seven career starts.

Taillon allowed six runs on eight hits in five innings in his last start before surgery at Cincinnati on May 3. He let up five earned runs in 14 frames during three rehab starts, striking out 21 and walking just three along the way. The 25-year-old, who has never faced Colorado, owns a 3.14 ERA while holding opponents to a .226 average in 13 career starts at home.

Oddsmakers currently have the Pirates listed as 134-moneyline favorites versus the Rockies, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Jameson Taillon makes his return to the mound for the Pittsburgh Pirates when they begin a three-game series with the visiting Colorado Rockies on Monday. Taillon was diagnosed with testicular cancer earlier in the year and had surgery May 8 before working his way back.

“Physically, mentally I’m 100 percent. I’m as sharp as I’ve been all year,” Taillon told reporters Saturday. “If anything, I had some time while I was away to work on things that I wanted to get done and sharpen up, so I’m probably in a better spot now than I was before.” The Pirates have a little momentum going into Taillon’s comeback after winning the final two games of a four-game series with the Miami Marlins over the weekend. Ivan Nova was outstanding through six innings and the bullpen got Pittsburgh to the finish line in a 3-1 win Sunday afternoon. The National League-leading Rockies, who will send impressive rookie Kyle Freeland to the mound, had won seven in a row – their longest run of the year – before falling 7-5 at Wrigley Field on Sunday.

Last time out for Pittsburgh, they were a 3-1 winner as they battled the Marlins on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Pirates at -159 were rewarded, while the 4 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Colorado was a 7-5 loser in its last match on the road against the Cubs. They lost as +202 underdogs, while the total score of 12 made winners of OVER bettors.
