The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Marlins have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Marlins have won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 89 hits and 16 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Adeiny Hechavarria have combined for 80 RBI. The Miami Marlins have won four straight home games. Mat Latos takes the hill, and he’s 1-4 with a 6.12 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season. Latos is 5-2 with a 3.79 ERA and 50 strikeouts in his career against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games and 20-53 in their last 73 road games. The Marlins are 5-2 in their last 7 Saturday games and 0-4 in Latos' last 4 starts as a favorite. The Rockies are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Miami.
Latos has had some time off to get his head straight and get healthy. With the way the fish are hitting the ball, they should finally be able to get their big guy a pick-me-up victory. I like Miami to win its fifth straight home game.
