Look­ing ahead

Pi­rates RHP Ivan Nova (10-6, 3.27 ERA) at Rock­ies LHP Kyle Free­land (9-7, 3.67), 1:10 p.m. Sun­day, AT&T Sport­snet; 850 AM

Free­land is rolling. The rookie did not al­low a run over his last two ap­pear­ances: an 8L-in­ning, near no­hit game July 9 vs. the Chicago White Sox, and three score­less in­nings of re­lief July 15 at the New York Mets. The orig­i­nal plan was to limit Free­land’s in­nings for a while by tak­ing him out of the ro­ta­tion, but an in­jury to Tyler Chat­wood cur­tailed those plans. Free­land, whose 3.67 ERA is the best among Na­tional League rook­ies, is 5-4 with a 3.23 ERA in nine starts at Coors Field. Nova has won five of his last seven de­ci­sions and has pitched at least six in­nings in 18 of his 19 starts. He is 0-2 with an 8.40 ERA in three ca­reer starts vs. the Rock­ies, all when he was a mem­ber of the New York Yan­kees. — Monday: Rock­ies RHP An­to­nio Sen­za­tela (10-3, 4.67 ERA) at Car­di­nals RHP Mike Leake (6-8, 3.39), 6:08 p.m., AT&T Sport­snet and ESPN
