The Miami Marlins have found some wins here at Coors Field against the Colorado Rockies. The Fish are looking to find a few more runs tonight, hopefully with the help of Christian Yelich.

The Fish will tackle their expansion brethren Rockies in the third game of a four-game series. Tonight, it will be the puzzling Jacob Turner versus the effective Jorge De La Rosa.

The Miami Marlins have one confusing pitcher in Jacob Turner. He's got excellent whiff rates but mediocre strikeout rates. Last season, he could not stop allowing home runs, but this season he has only allowed three. Tonight, the Marlins are in Coors, which doesn't bode well for someone known for long flies.

De La Rosa is one of two or three Rockies pitchers (one of the others was Jhoulys Chacin, whom we saw last night) who has had a strong season, primarily due to not allowing home runs. Giancarlo Stanton would like a word with these pitchers.

The Marlins are giving Logan Morrison a night off, so his first base replacement, Ed Lucas, is batting cleanup.

I repeat: Ed Lucas is batting cleanup for the 2013 Miami Marlins.

Meh, better than Placido Polanco, I suppose. But these guys couldn't score off of me pitching. We need you Yelich and Stanton!

Bold Prediction: Rockies def. Marlins 5-0
