Freeland hurls seven shutout innings
Colorado lefty Kyle Freeland threw seven shutout frames last night in a 2-0 win by the hosts, giving up two hits with five strikeouts and three walks. Wade Davis threw a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts for his 32nd save. David Dahl helped lead the offense by going 2-for-4 with a double from the leadoff spot. Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story both finished 1-for-3 with a run. Gerardo Parra and Chris Iannetta each drove in a run.
Pirates limited to two hits
The only hits by Pittsburgh last night came via Corey Dickerson and pitcher Joe Musgrove, who helped his own cause with a double. Musgrove was the unlucky losing pitcher as he surrendered two runs (one earned) on four hits with two strikeouts and no walks over seven innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Pirates are 2-8 in their last 10 Tuesday games. The over is 13-6 in the last 19 Pittsburgh road games.
The Rockies are 17-4 in their last 21 home games. The under is 22-8-2 in the last 32 Colorado games on Tuesdays.
It's difficult to keep the runs off the board for long at Coors Field, but the totals are still a bit too high more often than not. That's playing a big role in the under hitting a lot in the hitter's haven of Coors Field. Taillon and Bettis are both capable pitchers and even if they give up three or four runs here, there is a great chance at an under here especially with the offense coming in cold after yesterday's showing.
