The Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins begin a four-game series Friday night at Marlins Park.
The Colorado Rockies look to keep rolling after winning six of their last seven games. The Rockies have scored 21 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Colorado Rockies offense continues to be red hot, and they’ve won seven of their last nine games when scoring more than three runs. Carlos Gonzalez leads Colorado with 77 hits, Nolan Arenado has 57 RBI and Trevor Story has 17 home runs. Jon Gray gets the nod, and he’s 4-2 with a 4.70 ERA and 68 strikeouts this season. This will be Gray’s first career game against the Marlins.

The Miami Marlins look for consistency after splitting their last 14 games. The Marlins have scored 21 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Miami Marlins offense has also been hot recently, and they’ve won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring more than three runs. Martin Prado leads Miami with 82 hits, Marcell Ozuna has 37 RBI and Giancarlo Stanton has 12 home runs. Adam Conley takes the hill, and he’s 3-4 with a 4.13 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. This will be Conley’s first career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 5-1 in their last 6 games following an off day and 6-13 in Grays last 19 starts. The Marlins are 1-6 in their last 7 games following an off day and 1-4 in Conleys last 5 starts. The Rockies are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Miami and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Rockies take advantage of their park at Coors where everybody scores a truckload of runs, but that's not the case in Miami where it's tough to leave the ballpark. Conley has also been solid this season, allowing three or less runs in six of his last nine starts. I like the fish here.
