The Marlins are 5-1 in their last six in game three of a series and 29-59 in their last 88 after a loss. Miami is 1-4 in their last five versus the NL West and 1-5 in their last six overall.
Meanwhile, the Rockies are 4-1 in their last five Sunday games and 12-28 in their last 40 overall. Colorado is 1-9 in Lambert’s last 10 starts and 1-5 in his last six home starts.
Yamamoto has been on a slide lately, with at least four earned runs given up in each of his last five starts. That makes for 23 earned runs over that time in all.
As for Lambert, he coughed up nine earned in Houston but did okay his last time out at home with three earned against the Diamondbacks. I like Lambert a little better right now so I’m going Rockies here.
