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.
