Look­ing ahead

Pi­rates RHP Trevor Wil­liams (3-4, 4.69 ERA) at Rock­ies RHP Jeff Hoff­man (6-1, 4.33), 6:40 p.m. Fri­day, AT&T Sport­sNet; 850 AM

The Rock­ies used Thurs­day’s off day to bump Hoff­man up one spot in the ro­ta­tion. He will pitch on reg­u­lar rest in place of Tyler Chat­wood, who re­mains on the dis­abled list with a strained calf mus­cle. Hoff­man has come back to earth a bit af­ter a sky-high start in which he al­lowed a run or fewer in four of his first five starts. But he lasted at least six in­nings in his past four starts, in­clud­ing two at Coors Field, where he gave up seven to­tal runs in 14 in­nings. Both pitch­ers will be fac­ing their op­po­nents for the first time.
