Colorado vs Miami Probable Pitchers

In a matchup of left-handers, Kyle Freeland (3-5, 4.46) is scheduled to pitch for the Rockies against rookie Braxton Garrett (1-2, 4.85). Freeland will be working on five days of rest and Garrett on four.

Freeland vs Garrett

Kyle Freeland
Braxton Garrett
3-5 Record 1-2
4.46 ERA 4.85
4.96 xERA 5.40
1.40 WHIP 1.54
2.09 SO/W 2.50

Freeland is 2-0 with a 3.15 ERA in his last three starts, including beating the San Diego Padres last Friday in Denver despite not having any strikeouts in seven innings. He allowed four runs and eight hits while walking one.

The Denver-area native couldn’t help but think of the Stanley Cup Finals, too.

Freeland is 2-0 in his career against the Marlins with a 4.15 ERA in four game (two starts). He won in his lone appearance at loanDepot Park, a start in 2019 in which he yielded only one run in seven innings.

In five starts on the road this season, Freeland is 1-2 with a 3.00 ERA. He has a 1-2 record and a 5.64 ERA in four starts during the day.

Garrett will be making his fourth start of the season. Last Saturday, he lost to the Mets in New York as he allowed three runs on five hits in four innings while walking two and striking out none.

In his lone start against the Rockies, Garrett lost last season as he surrendered two runs over four innings.

He might have beaten the Rox if it were table tennis.

Garrett’s only start at home this season came in his season debut June 5 when he was touched for four runs in 3.1 innings in a loss to the San Francisco Giants. Each of his three starts have been in the day.

Marlins Batters Batting Average vs Kyle Freeland

The Rockies’ Charlie Blackmon is 2 for 2 against Garrett.

Freeland has had trouble with the Marlins’ Jesus Aguilar, who is 6 for 11 (.545) off him with a double and three home runs. Miguel Rojas is 2 for 5 with a pair of doubles.

Rockies vs Marlins Betting Outlook

Garrett Cooper, Jazz Chisholm Jr. and Jorge Soler hit home runs to help lead the Marlins to victory on Tuesday night.

Cooper two-run shot capped a four-run fourth inning that put the Marlins ahead 4-1. Chisholm, who has +2500 National League MVP odds, hit a two-run blast in the seventh and Soler added a solo blast later in the inning to break the game open at 7-1.

The Rockies’ Elias Diaz hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning.

This will be the final games of the season between the Rockies and Marlins, who have three of five in the series. Colorado holds an 11-7 edge over Miami since the 2019 season.

Rockies vs Marlins Prediction

Betting on the Rockies on the road can often be a fool’s errand. However, Kyle Freeland has been pitching well lately and he has been very good away from Coors Field this season, making Colorado an attractive underdog.

Pick: Rockies ML (+116)
