The Miami Marlins hope to stay hot when the Milwaukee Brewers visit South Florida.
The Milwaukee Brewers have been red hot but at this point that only moves them away from the National League Central cellar. The Brewers dropped a 6-3 decision at Cincinnati on Sunday to snap a six game winning streak. Starter Jimmy Nelson was charged with five runs on nine hits including a pair of homers over five innings to get the loss. The Brew Crew logged nine hits with Ryan Braun going solo while Adam Lind drove in a run and scored. Rookie Zach Davies makes his second career start when he opposes the Marlins. Davies did not get a decision in a 9-4 win versus Pittsburgh in his debut where he gave up all four runs on four hits and three BB in 4.1 frames.

The Miami Marlins have been playing well and have been distancing themselves from the National League East basement. The Marlins stayed hot after a 4-3 victory versus the visiting Mets gave the Fish wins in five of six. Starter Jarred Cosart allowed a run through 4.2 frames with Chris Narveson giving up two more. The Marlins posted nine hits and a trio of free passes with Justin Bour and Jeff Mathis smacking solo bombs while Marcell Ozuna went 2-3with an RBI. Rookie Justin Nicolino makes his second start against the visiting Brewers on Monday. Nicolino is coming off of a 7-1 victory at Atlanta where he tossed a six hit shutout over seven innings.
The over is 7-0-1 in Milwaukee’s last 8 road games and is 12-2-2 in their last 16 overall while going 12-2-2 in their last 16 on grass. Miami are 3-12 in their last 15 Monday games and the over is 8-2-1 in their last 11 games as a favorite while the Marlins are 2-7 in their last 9 home games. The over is 16-4-2 in the last 22 meetings in Miami and the Brewers are 10-4 in the last 14 meetings in Miami. I’m inclined to back the Marlins and cross my fingers…
