At Coors Field
Game time: 8:40PM ET
Probable starters:
PIT: Trevor Williams (3-4, 4.57 ERA)
COL: Jeff Hoffman (6-1, 4.33 ERA)

Quote:
The Rockies and Pirates will have unfamiliar faces going against each other for Friday's series opener. Jeff Hoffman will make his first career start against the Pirates, while Trevor Williams will start against the Rockies for the first time.

Hoffman, called up in May, got off to a hot start for the Rockies but has cooled off since giving up nine runs in 3 2/3 innings on June 21. Before that outing, Hoffman had given up just one run in four of his five starts, but in four starts since June 21, he owns a 4.39 ERA.

Williams began the season as a reliever but transitioned to the rotation in early May. In 13 starts this year, Williams is 2-3 with a 4.57 ERA. His best start came June 4 vs. the Mets, when he gave up one run in seven innings.

Pirates outfielder Starling Marte returned from his 80-game PED suspension Tuesday, and this will be his first full series since being activated.

Three things to know about this game

• Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is having a resurgent season after last year's disappointment, and he has some pretty solid numbers at Coors Field. McCutchen is 31-for-103 with six home runs in 27 career games in Colorado, good for a .301 batting average. Three of his homers came in one game last year, when the Pirates beat the Rockies, 9-4, on April 26.

• Hoffman threw his fastball 80 percent of the time in his last start -- a new career high, per Statcast. Hoffman's four-seamer averaged 94.2 mph, but this fastball-heavy approach is nothing new. His four-seam fastball rate trails only teammate Antonio Senzatela among starters with at least 750 pitches in 2017.

• The Rockies and Pirates played one series in Pittsburgh earlier this season, with the Pirates taking two of three from June 12-14. The Pirates outscored the Rockies, 13-9, in that series.

BELIEVE - This team can and will be in it until the final week of the season.


Get a fucking sack and get involved here you silly yinzers. Deal Harrison and go grab Moustakas and a real 3rd Base option for the NL.


I want me some Brault more and more as an in house option.





Its way overdue to have a meet up for a few beers for the local contingent here in the BURGH.
