3 units on Colorado -1.5 runs +106 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Rockies have taken the first three of this series and will look for the four-game sweep today behind Aaron Cook who has been their most consistent pitcher all season. Cook brings an 11-6 mark into this game with a 3.57 ERA. The Rockies continue to pound LHP at home where they are now 11-4 on the season, averaging nearly seven runs per game against southpaws. That spells trouble for the Pirates and Zach Duke, who has been ineffective of late, pitching to a 7.43 ERA over his last three starts. Opponents have tallied an average of 5.7 runs per game over Duke's 19 starts. We like the Rockies to come away with an easy win here and sweep the four-game series.
