The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Marlins have scored eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Marlins have won four of their last five games when scoring more than three runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 88 hits and 16 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Adeiny Hechavarria have combined for 76 RBI. The Miami Marlins have won four of their last five home games. David Phelps takes the hill, and he’s 2-3 with a 4.68 ERA and 39 strikeouts this season. Phelps is 0-1 with a 10.24 ERA and seven strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. National League East and 20-52 in their last 72 road games. The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 games as a favorite and 0-5 in Phelps' last 5 starts. The over is 3-0-2 in the last 5 meetings in Miami.
Do you trust the Marlins are looking lifeless against the Blue Jays? Yeah, me neither. I'll take the Rockies in this spot as more of a fade against Miami.
