The Marlins have won 4 of 5 in this series in 2014 and there is no reason to think that their success over Colorado will not continue tonight. Rockies’ starter Jordan Lyles has been good at home this season with a 4-1 mark at home with an adequate for Colorado ERA of 4.50 on the season, but he’s really struggled in his last 4 at Coors going 1-1 with an 8.35 ERA. He’s coming off of one of his poorer outing of the season allowing 5 runs over 5 innnigs to the Reds and hasn’t looked good since returning from the DL.
