The Pirates’ pitching staff bounced back from a rough outing on Saturday, with four pitchers combining to hold the Rockies to two runs. Carmen Mlodzinski earned the victory with two innings of shutout relief. Manager Derek Shelton praised his team’s ability to throw strikes and avoid walks, which was key to their success.

Andrew McCutchen’s streak of consecutive games with a home run at Coors Field was snapped at five, but Oneil Cruz returned to the lineup with a single and double after missing two games with ankle soreness. The Pirates’ victory was a testament to their resilience, as they were able to bounce back from a tough loss and secure a win on the road.

As Triolo said, “Good teams take pride in bouncing back from losses like Saturday night. We came in today with a plan to do so.” The Pirates’ win was a remarkable one, as they were able to silence the Rockies’ bats and come out on top in a crucial game.
