The Miami Marlins and Arizona Diamondbacks play a rubber game Sunday afternoon at Chase Field.
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 six of their last nine games. The Miami Marlins offense has been rather hot lately, and they’ve won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring more than three runs. Marcell Ozuna leads Miami with 76 hits, Christian Yelich has 29 RBI and Giancarlo Stanton has 12 home runs. Adam Conley gets the nod, and he’s 3-3 with a 3.76 ERA and 65 strikeouts this season. This will be Conley’s second career game against the Diamondbacks.

The Arizona Diamondbacks haven’t won back-to-back games since May 28-29. The Diamondbacks have allowed 17 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. The Arizona Diamondbacks have an ERA of 4.76 and have lost eight straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Jean Segura leads Arizona with 74 hits, Paul Goldschmidt has 38 RBI and Jake Lamb has 11 home runs. Robbie Ray takes the hill, and he’s 2-5 with a 5.14 ERA and 72 strikeouts this season. Ray is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Conleys last 7 road starts vs. a team with a losing record. The Diamondbacks are 4-1 in their last 5 Sunday games and 0-4 in Rays last 4 starts. The Marlins are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The Marlins have pretty much outplayed the Diamondbacks this whole series besides one bad inning from Fernandez Saturday night. Conley is also a pitcher who is starting to come into his own. I'll take the better team and the plus money to get the series win.
