Notes: When you think of the Rockies, you think of inflated offensive numbers. But Ryan McMahon is their lone player with more than five home runs this season...The Rockies’ struggles away from home are truly astounding. In 26 road games, they have been held scoreless 10 times!

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Jazz Chisholm Jr.
  2. CF Starling Marte
  3. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  4. LF Corey Dickerson
  5. RF Adam Duvall
  6. 3B Isan Díaz
  7. C Jorge Alfaro

  9. RHP Pablo López (2021 season stats: 2.82 ERA, 3.41 FIP, 25.0 K%, 31.1 HardHit% in 67.0 IP)

Notes: Jesús Aguilar is a one-man antithesis of the Rockies. All 12 of his home runs have been hit on the road...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Anthony Bass, Richard Bleier, Daniel Castano, Dylan Floro and Yimi García. Castano is presumed to be Wednesday’s starter if he’s not needed tonight.
