At Coors Field
Game time: 8:10PM ET
Probable starters:
PIT: Chad Kuhl (3-6, 4.85 ERA)
COL: German Marquez (7-4, 4.34 ERA)

Quote:
As the Pirates and Rockies prepare for their second game of a three-game series, both of Saturday's starting pitchers are coming off outings that saw them set new strikeout career highs.

The surging Pirates, who have won six straight and enter Saturday two games behind the National League Central-leading Brewers, will send right-hander Chad Kuhl to the hill. The Bucs' right-hander fanned seven Brewers in a 4-2 win on Monday, while Rockies rookie German Marquez whiffed nine Padres during a 9-6 win, also on Monday. Kuhl and Marquez have each struck out 76 batters this year.

The two young starters faced each other once before this season -- a 5-1 Rockies win on June 14. Kuhl gave up three runs in five innings, while Marquez was charged with one run in five.

Three things to know about this game

• After a rocky start lasting through the end of May, Kuhl has righted the ship. In his last nine starts dating back to May 31, he owns a 3.47 ERA and has struck out 7.7 batters per nine innings.

• Since allowing 13 runs in his first two starts at Coors Field this season, Marquez has allowed nine runs in 33 1/3 innings over five home starts, which is good for a 2.43 ERA.

• Ian Desmond is the only Rockies hitter to have a home run in his career against Kuhl. He hit his dinger in the meeting earlier this season.

Polanco day to day with a hamstring pull.

Cutch knocks the first run home. 1-0 Bucs top 2nd.

Well, not gonna win em all --- nice to still be only 3 games out even after dropping one. At least Colo used up Holland tonight so he shouldn't be a factor tomorrow. Go get the rubber match, Buccos --

Chad Kuhl needs to be out of the rotation. Unfortunately, like Glasnow, he's not progressing in the Majors.

Completely agree.

What a horrible performance by the Rockies' closer. You're up by 5 runs! WTF are you nibbles?

I guess it's good he isn't available today, but the Pirates have to want to see that guy again... he sucked.
