Pittsburgh at Colorado

1 unit on Colorado +135 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.35) RESULT: LOSS
The Pittsburgh Pirates made use of the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field last night, striking for 9 runs in a 9-3 win to move within four games of St. Louis in the NL Central. The Pirates turn to surprising J.A. Happ who after five straight wins in a Pirates uniform saw that come to an end in his last start. Happ should be trending downward as he has pitched over his head, and the Rockies own a record of above .500 as a home dog in this park, so you can never count them out at Coors. The Rockies have not shown a lot this season, but they have been good lately, bouncing back from a loss where they have won four of their last five. The Pirates recent track record in Denver is on shaky ground, at 2-5 in their last seven. Take the home dog Rockies.
