EDGE Analysis

Archer fared much better in his second start for the Pirates, stifling the Rockies at Coors Field to earn his first win with Pittsburgh. The right-hander retired the first eight batters he faced before pitcher German Marquez notched a single in the third inning. Archer wasn't as sharp over the final two innings -- allowing four hits and two walks -- but he managed to exit with a 3-2 lead after limiting the damage to a David Dahl two-run homer. He'll look to keep the momentum going in his next outing, which will come on the road against the Twins on Tuesday.
