The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Colorado Rockies will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at Coors Field.

Chad Kuhl will be the starting pitcher for the Pirates on this day. Right hander Kuhl is 3-6 this season with a 4.85 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be German Marquez who starts for the Rockies. Right hander Marquez is 7-4 with a 4.34 ERA so far this season.

Kuhl settled for a no-decision after striking out a career-high seven and allowing two runs, four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings of Pittsburgh’s 4-2 victory over Milwaukee on Monday. The 24-year-old Delaware native, who boasts a 3.41 ERA over his last six turns, is 2-2 with a 3.69 ERA in nine road outings this season.
Kuhl lost his only start versus Colorado, yielding three runs in five innings of a 5-1 loss on June 14.

Marquez permitted three runs, eight hits and two walks while matching a career high with nine strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings of a 9-6 victory over San Diego on Monday. The 22-year-old Venezuelan has been consistent both home and away, going 4-2 with a 4.57 ERA in seven starts at Coors Field compared to 3-2, 4.08 in eight road turns. Marquez allowed one run and four hits over five innings in his only start against the Pirates.

Oddsmakers currently have the Rockies listed as 126-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 12.

After taking a big bite out of Milwaukee’s lead in the National League Central, the Pittsburgh Pirates have turned their attention to whittling down their deficit in the NL wild-card race as they visit the Colorado Rockies on Saturday for the middle contest of their three-game series. Pittsburgh is within two games of the slumping Brewers in the Central and 6 1/2 back of Colorado for the second wild card after routing the Rockies 13-5 on Friday for its season-high sixth straight victory.

The Pirates (49-48), who swept four contests from Milwaukee earlier this week, have picked up six games on the Brewers in six days after winning for the ninth time in their last 10 at Coors Field. The Rockies (56-42), who had a four-game winning streak that came on the heels of a 5-15 stretch snapped Friday, are 5 1/2 games clear of the Chicago Cubs for the second wild card. They also have a red-hot hitter in Nolan Arenado, who has belted four home runs in his last two games, is 11-for-20 with 12 RBIs and nine runs scored in his past five contests and leads the major leagues with 82 RBIs. Colorado’s German Marquez already owns a victory over Pittsburgh this season and opposes Chad Kuhl, who makes his Coors Field debut riding a six-start unbeaten streak (2-0) which began after a loss to Marquez and the Rockies and hopes to help the Pirates to their 13th victory in their last 15 games.

Last time out for Colorado, they were a 13-5 loser as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Pirates at 118 were rewarded, while the 18 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Pittsburgh was a 13-5 winner on the road against the Rockies. Bettors on Pittsburgh at 118 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (18) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
