Free MLB Pick
Kyle Kendrick did not have a bad last outing going 7 innings and giving up 2 earned runs, but got little run support in a 3-2 loss to the Marlins this last weekend. The Rockies have lost 7 of their last 8 games, including their last 2, when Kendrick has gotten the start. While he has given up 15 HR on the season and has the 2nd highest ERA in the NL he is 14-3 with a 3.41 ERA in 27 career games against the Marlins. Stanton is 8/16 with 4 HR, 2 doubles and 8 RBI over his last 4 games, but in his career he is only hitting .103 against Kendrick in 29 at bats. Jose Urena only has 3 starts this season and has improved after each one and in his last one he went 6 innings and gave up 1 earned run in a 3-2 win over the Rockies.
Urena beat the Rockies this last weekend in Colorado having a good outing and at home he will do the same, as the Marlins will take this game and send Colorado to their 3rd straight loss.
