The Miami Marlins look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The Marlins have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Marlins have won seven of their last 11 games when topping three runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 34 hits and 10 RBI while Adeiny Hechavarria and Giancarlo Stanton have combined for 33 RBI. Six of the Miami Marlins 12 losses this season have come on their home field. David Phelps gets the ball, and he’s 1-0 with a 3.55 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. Phelps is 0-1 with a 9.00 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 2-6 in Monteros last 8 starts. The Marlins are 6-13 in their last 19 during game 2 of a series and 5-1 in their last 6 vs. National League East. The Mets are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Miami.
The Marlins are going to be sick after blowing Monday's game and eager to get back in the win column. Montero hasn't shown he's worth backing so far this season, which is why I'm taking the red hot home team over the red hot road team.
