The Colorado Rockies and the Miami Marlins will be finishing up their MLB set on Sunday.

The Rockies took the first two games of this set 6-3 and 6-1, then on Saturday Miami took a 7-3 win.

For the Sunday game, the Rockies will be bringing out Jon Gray to start. In 2-18, Gray put up 172 innings with a 12-9 record and a 5.12 ERA along with 183 strikeouts.

In the Saturday game, the Rockies fell 7-3. Charlie Blackmon bagged two hits and an RBI there, and Ryan McMaron also put up a pair of hits in four at-bats.

Over on the Marlins’ side, they’re going with Sandy Alcantara on the mound. In 2018 with Miami, Alcantara logged a 3.44 ERA in 34.0 innings, putting up a 2-3 record with 30 strikeouts.

In Saturday’s matchup, Miami’s lead player was Miguel Rojas (three RBI; three hits), and Rosell Herrera bagged two hits and one RBI.

Colorado is 5-0 in the last five during game four of a series and 20-6 in the last 26 versus the NL East. The Rockies are 2-8 in Gray’s last 10 starts and 5-2 in the last seven road starts.

Meanwhile, the Marlins are 17-39 in the last 56 overall and 0-4 in Alcantara’s last four starts. Miami is 0-4 in Alacantara’s last four grass starts and the over is 4-1 in the last five Sunday games.

We haven’t seen much of Alcantara yet, but he’s got the goods to be a solid MLB pitcher. Alcantara had a couple of bumps in the road late last season but also a handful of nice outings.

As for Gray, he gave up 15 earned combined in three of his last four starts, and he’ll need to get back to basics here. This one might be tighter than some people think, but i like the Rockies again.
