Rockies Trying To Keep Wild-Card Spot Vs Marlins

The Colorado Rockies hold a 1.5-game lead for the final NL wild-card spot and have little room for error entering their series finale with the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. The Rockies picked up a 6-0 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday but that is the team’s lone win in its past six against Miami.  

SHARK BITES
  • The Marlins are 3-12 SU in their last 15 games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Marlins’ last 4 games against the Rockies.
  • The Rockies are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games at home with Jon Gray as the starting pitcher.

The Rockies will give ace Jon Gray the ball for this matinee matchup. Gray has easily been the Rockies’ best pitcher over the past two months, posting a 2.24 ERA in his last 10 starts while not once allowing more than three earned runs. The righty allowed eight hits and three earned runs in 5.2 innings against the Marlins in his one outing against the club on August 11.

Marlins pitcher Adam Conley will hope to give himself a positive note to enter the offseason with after struggling through his recent outings. The southpaw has a 9.56 ERA in his four starts during September and has only once made it through the fifth inning.
