The Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins meet Tuesday in MLB action at loanDepot park. The Rockies look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Marlins need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games.
The Colorado Rockies have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in nine of their last 13 games. The Rockies have lost six of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Raimel Tapia leads the Rockies with 61 hits and 31 RBI while Ryan McMahon and Charlie Blackmon have combined for 104 hits and 64 RBI. Antonio Senzatela gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 4.47 ERA and 34 strikeouts this season. Senzatela is 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA and eight strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Miami Marlins have scored 13 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last seven games. The Marlins have lost eight of their last nine games when scoring three or less runs. Jesus Aguilar leads the Marlins with 52 hits and 44 RBI while Corey Dickerson and Miguel Rojas have combined for 94 hits and 28 RBI. Pablo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 1-3 with a 2.82 ERA and 68 strikeouts this season. This will be Lopez’s second career game against the Rockies.
The Rockies are 2-5 in their last 7 games following an off day and 14-37 in their last 51 road games. The Marlins are 18-40 in their last 58 Tuesday games and 1-8 in their last 9 overall. The under is 7-1 in Rockies last 8 road games. The over is 4-1 in Marlins last 5 overall. The Rockies are 5-14 in the last 19 meetings in Miami and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Marlins should be favored if Pablo Lopez actually gets the ball tonight. However, I’m still not laying juice with the Marlins in their current form. The Marlins are watching their season fall apart before their eyes and confidence can’t be too high right now. The Rockies are coming off possibly their best week of the season. Give me the Rockies and the plus money.
