After a couple of up and down performances in game one and two, the Rockies will have another chance to secure their first series win of the season. The Rockies have had a tough matchup with a couple of good pitchers and one of the best shut them down yesterday in Jared Jones. They will have another tough matchup today, though not on the same level as Jones. The offense will need to be better than they were yesterday if they have any chance of securing a victory before heading home.

Probable Starting Pitchers

  • The Rockies will send out arguably their best arm this year, RHP Ryan Feltner (1-2, 5.13 ERA), as he will look to secure just his second win on the season and the first Rockies series win of the year. After a few up and down performances, Feltner was at his best last start against the Marlins, throwing eight innings, giving up five hits and no walks. He was charged with three runs, though part of that was the bullpens inability to limit damage and secure the win, part of their epic meltdown in a five-run inning. Feltner will look to continue that dominance today as he looks to show us a breakout 2024 season.
  • The Pirates have an impressive rotation this year (and they have one of the best pitching prospects we have seen in a while). LHP Bailey Faltner (2-2, 4.22 ERA) will take the bump to get the Pirates on track after they broke a five-game losing streak yesterday. After a terrible spring, it was surprising that Faltner would open the season in the rotation, but he has been solid. Faltner is a solid pitcher who won't walk a lot, and shouldn't strikeout very many, so the Rockies will need to be aggressive and take advantage of every opportunity that they have to score.
