Marlins Park and the Miami Marlins host the Atlanta Braves in a Monday MLB matchup.
The Atlanta Braves never found their offense and their pitching couldn’t control the scoreboard in a 6-2 defeat at Washington on Sunday. Atlanta starter Mike Foltynewicz gave up four runs in 5.2 frames while a pair of relievers allowed a run each.

The Braves racked up 14 hits and a walk with Dansby Swanson driving in both runs with Tyler Flowers and Johan Camargo scoring.
Left hander Sean Newcomb looks to right the ship after three straight poor performances. Over three starts Newcomb has allowed 13 runs 13 innings of work.
The surging Miami Marlins saw a shot at a five game winning streak go up in smoke in a 6-4 loss at Tampa Bay where the Rays scored five times in the 9th. Miami starter Trevor Richards allowed a run over 6.2 innings before Kyle Barraclough was charged with five 9th inning runs including a walk off grand slam.
The Marlins logged nine hits and a walk with Miguel Rojas going 2-5 with a pair of RBI’s and a run while Bryan Holaday drove in a run in a four run second.
The Marlins hand the ball to Jose Urena for Monday’s start versus visiting Atlanta. Urena did not get a decision in a 10-5 win against Philadelphia with five runs given up over four frames.
Over is 16-5 in Atlanta last 21 road games and Atlanta are 6-14 in their last 20 Monday games and over is 25-12-4 in Atlanta last 41 Monday games. Miami are 3-10 in Urena’s last 13 home starts and under is 6-2 in Urena’s last 8 home starts and Miami are 7-19 in Urena’s last 26 starts. Miami are 2-7 in Urena’s last 9 starts vs. Atlanta and over is 38-18-3 in the last 59 meetings.
I think the Marlins have a fighting chance as they are playing well and facing a struggling pitcher…
