The Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers play game two of their series Tuesday night.
The Miami Marlins need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Marlins have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last eight games. The Marlins have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 54 hits and 12 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Adeiny Hechavarria have combined for 48 RBI. The Miami Marlins have lost five of their last eight games on the road. Dan Haren gets the ball, and he’s 4-1 with a 2.68 ERA and 24 strikeouts this season. Harden is 6-6 with a 3.49 ERA and 93 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Dodgers have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last seven games. The Dodgers have won 18 straight games when scoring more than three runs. Adrian Gonzalez leads LA with 44 hits and 29 RBI while Joc Pederson and Howie Kendrick have combined for 36 RBI. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won five straight games on their home field. Mike Bolsinger takes the hill, and he’s 0-0 with a 1.59 ERA and five strikeouts this season. This will be Bolsinger’s first career game against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 5-1 in Harens last 6 starts. The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 36-15 in their last 51 home games. The Marlins are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles.
The Marlins should have won their last two games, and now have Haren on the mound who has been rock solid all year and returns to a park he knows well. I like the fish and the plus money.
