Miami managed to put up eight hits in the loss Saturday. Garrett Cooper led the way for the Marlins on a solo shot with two RBI and two hits.

Over on the Rockies’ side, they’re going with Peter Lambert on Sunday. Across 60.0 innings and a 2-3 record this year, Lambert has a 6.75 ERA with 42 Ks and 21 BBs.

Colorado logged 13 hits in the Saturday game. The lead Rockies hitters were Trevor Story and Charlie Blackmon, who combined for five knocks, five runs and five RBI.

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.
