The Miami pitching staff has a 4.40 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP, and a .251 opponent batting average this season. The Marlins offense has scored 164 runs with a .249 batting average and a .304 on base percentage. Jorge Soler is batting .247 with 12 home runs and 27 RBI’s for the Marlins. The projected starting pitcher for Miami is Edward Cabrera, who is 3-3 with a 5.13 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP over 40.1 innings pitched this year. 

Rockies Preview

The Colorado Rockies are 19-28 this season and they have lost four of their last five games. Colorado is coming off of a series loss to the Rangers, where they lost all three games. The Colorado pitching staff has a 5.00 ERA, a 1.47 WHIP, and a .268 opponent batting average. The Rockies offense has scored 208 runs with a .258 batting average and a .317 on base percentage this year. Elias Diaz is batting .326 with three home runs and 22 RBI’s for the Rockies. The projected starting pitcher for Colorado is Chase Anderson, who is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.50 WHIP over 10.0 innings pitched this season.


Miami is 35-75 in their last 110 game one’s of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 Monday games. The under is 8-3 in Miami’s last 11 game one’s of a series. Colorado is 1-4 in their last 5 game one’s of a series and 8-20 in their last 28 games against the NL East. The under is 11-4-1 in Colorado’s last 16 Monday games. The over is 8-2 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings.


Miami continues to be above .500 this season, but they have one of the lowest scoring offenses in the MLB. Colorado has done a decent job hitting the ball, but they have an elevated team ERA. Colorado is starting Chase Anderson, who allowed 0 earned runs over five innings against Cincinnati in his first start for Colorado. Miami is starting Edward Cabrera, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 13.1 innings pitched. I like Colorado in this matchup.
