Under is 14-3 in Colorado last 17 Tuesday games. Pittsburgh are 8-2 in their last 10 home games and are 13-4 in their last 17 overall and are 13-4 in their last 17 games on grass. Colorado are 6-15 in the last 21 meetings.
I think these teams are on the same level at the very least so I’d rather take the nice odds on the Rockie
Marquez has shown reverse splits in his young major league career, with a 112 tOPS+ on a 280/341/537 line against right handed batters, vs 88 tOPS+, 277/343/420 against lefties.
Another hard thrower, Marquez throws the same mix of four-seam/curve/two-seam to batters on both sides of the plate, last year averaging 95.0 mph on the four-seam and 94.0 on the two-seam. He throws all his pitches for strikes, and gets his swings and misses on the curve (41% by RHB, 35% by LHB) while the whiff rates on his fastballs are generally below 10%.
With Josh Harrison on the disabled list with a broken hand, Adam Frazier is starting in his place at second base and leading off.
