For Tuesday’s matchup, the Marlins will be sending out RHP Jose Urena. In his 159.2 innings and 14-6 record this year, Urena has a 3.55 ERA with 107 Ks and 56 BBs.
The Marlins have some solid hitters this year. Dee Gordon entered this set with 191 hits, 107 runs and 33 RBI while Marcel Ozuna posted 181 hits, 88 runs, 36 homers and 118 RBI in that time. On Monday, Ozuna had two hits and a run, but Gordon came up empty.
Over on the Rockies’ side, they’re going with LHP Tyler Anderson on Monday. In his 79.0 innings and 5-6 record this year, Anderson has a 5.24 ERA with 76 Ks and 26 BBs.
Colorado has some big bats as well. Carlos Blackmon came into this set on 203 hits, 134 runs, 36 homers and 96 RBI while DJ LeMahieu posted 183 hits, 94 runs and 64 RBI in that span. Blackmon and LeMahieu combined for two hits and an RBI on Monday.
The Marlins are 4-1 in their last five during game two of a series and 4-0 in Urena’s last four Tuesday starts. Miami is also 7-1 in Urena’s last eight road starts and 16-7 in Urena’s last 23 starts.
Meanwhile, the Rockies are 5-1 in their last six during game two of a series and 1-4 in Anderson’s last five starts. Colorado is also 1-4 in Anderson’s last five starts on grass and the under is 12-2 in the Rockies’ last 14 Tuesday games.
Urena has been on a nice run lately, with three quality starts in his last four outings and six total earned runs across that quartet of games. As for Anderson, he had a run of 10.0 innings with zero earned in two wins, then took a loss in San Diego with three earned on six hits in 5.2 innings. If both guys come out firing here, the under probably isn’t a bad play. That said, I like Urena to keep it going and I’ll take the Marlins.
