Colorado got their offense going against a very good pitcher in Michael Wacha yesterday, but the pitching was non-existent in a 13-7 loss to St. Louis. Tonight they go against another ace in Gerritt Cole at Pittsburgh. Eddie Butler toes the rubber tonight in a 5:10 MDT tilt. CarGo continues to bat fourth despite being absolutely non-existent for over a month, save for his two-hit “outbreak” Sunday. CarGo needs to move down to 7-hole.
At the time of writing, the Pirates leads 1-0 after an inning and a half. Cole has been the beneficiary of baseball gods, getting two double plays off line drive right at an infield mitt.
