The Pittsburgh Pirates (24-21) take on the Colorado Rockies (21-25) for three games at PNC Park, with game two taking place tonight at 7:05 PM. Montana DuRapau will get his second start, then likely be followed by someone who can go extended innings. Last time that was Steven Brault. DuRapau tossed two scoreless innings in his first big league start. The Rockies will counter with 27-year-old right-hander Jon Gray. He has a 4.73 ERA in 53.1 innings, with 59 strikeouts and a 1.37 WHIP. He has given up 13 runs over 16.1 innings in his last three starts combined, though that comes with 25 strikeouts.
