Pittsburgh Pirates vs Colorado Rockies Predictions 4/17/2023


Colorado lost its fourth straight game on Saturday as Seattle beat them in the middle game of their series in the Pacific Northwest.


With a record of 5-10, the Rockies were last in the NL West heading into Sunday, four matches behind the Dodgers and Diamondbacks for first place in the division.


Elias Diaz and C.J. Cron both had two hits for Colorado on Saturday, but it wasn’t nearly enough to secure a victory.


On the mound, Ryan Feltner (0-2) was brutalized while taking the loss. Over 3.2 innings of work, he gave up five runs on five hits, three walks, and five strikeouts. 


In this game, Kyle Freeland will make his fourth start for the Rockies this year. He enters the game with a record of 2-0, a season’s worth of 18.2 innings of work, a 0.96 ERA, a 0.964 WHIP, 5 walks, and 11 strikeouts.


Freeland’s most recent start, on Tuesday night at home against the Cardinals, didn’t affect the outcome. He pitched six innings in a game the Rockies eventually lost 9-6, surrendering two runs on six hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts.


In this game, Freeland makes his seventh career start against the Pirates. 


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Colorado’s last 6 matches.
  • The Colorado Rockies are 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 9 of Colorado’s last 11 matches against Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Colorado Rockies. The MLB pick for this game is the Colorado Rockies. Although Pittsburgh started this season better than anticipated, Hill did not perform well so far in 2023.


When visiting Coors Field, you don’t want to have a stat like giving up six home runs in 15 innings of work. Freeland, meanwhile, pitched well against Pittsburgh in his history and was reliable in his three starts this season.


The Rockies are consistently a much superior offensive team at home than they are away from home, thus this situation is helped by the location.


Colorado has the edge here over a competent Pirates team because of their advantage on the mound, which is just enough. Colorado will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
