The Colorado Rockies pay a visit to South Florida to open a series with the Miami Marlins Thursday.
The Colorado Rockies have played well over the past week and had an opportunity to sweep the Cardinals Wednesday but came up short by a 4-2 count. The normally reliable Rockies attack stumbled and the work on the mound couldn’t compensate. Starter Chad Bettis allowed three runs on six hits and a pair of base on balls over five frames to absorb the loss. The offense totaled eight hits and walked once with Ben Paulsen cracking a two run bomb in the 7th that scored Nick Hundley. Colorado sends Christopher Rusin to the hill for his third start of the season and second in a row versus the Marlins. Rusin defeated Miami 10-5 with two runs plated on seven hits and eight K’s in seven innings.

The Miami Marlins appeared to be righting the ship with wins in four of five but they have dropped three in a row after following a 7-2 defeat at Toronto on Wednesday afternoon. Neither the bats or arms were strong in the loss with starter Tom Koehler charged with six runs on eight hits including three homers through 6.2. frames to fall to 4-4. The Fish mustered seven hits with Marcell Ozuna connecting on a solo jack while Ichiro Suzuki singling in Jeff Baker. David Phelps takes the mound for his second straight start against Colorado on Thursday. Phelps lost to the Rockies 10-5 with nine runs plated on eleven hits including two homers in 3.2 frames.
Colorado are 20-52 in their last 72 road games and are 12-5 in their last 17 overall while going 12-5 in their last 17 games on grass. The over is 15-5-1 in Miami’s last 21 Thursday games while the under is 10-4 in their last 14 on grass and 11-5 in the Marlins last 16 overall. The Rockies seem to be playing better and I’d give them a shot at plus money…
