Pittsburgh Pirates vs Colorado Rockies MLB Opening LinesDate/Time: August 28, 7:05 PM ET Venue: PNC Park, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania TV: ROOT SPORTS, MLBN Radio: KDKA-FM 93.7 Opening Run Lines: Pirates -230, Rockies +212 Francisco Liriano (9-6, 3.23 ERA) will start for the Pirates, who have won the last 11 games he has started. It has been a season to forget for the Colorado Rockies (51-74), as they have struggled to get wins no matter where they play. They are coming into this series on a bit of a high after taking back to back games off the Atlanta Braves. That was a much-needed morale boost after the club house was rocked earlier in the week. Jose Reyes, who came over to Colorado in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays, essentially made it clear that he was not happy with life in Colorado. This is a guy who wants to win, and he doesn’t feel that he will have the opportunity to do that with the Rockies. Jon Gray (0-0, 5.94 ERA) will make his 5th start of the season, and is coming off a very poor showing in his last outing.
