The Colorado Rockies have an off day before they welcome the Miami Marlins to Coors Field for a three game series.
After salvaging the last game in a three game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Coors Field with a walkout home run by Nolan Arenado, the Rockies will look to continue their momentum with the Miami Marlins this weekend in Denver.
In the final game of the series, Kyle Freeland pitched better than his final line looked like but his ERA still ticked up a bit due to allowing three runs in the 6th inning of Wednesday’s game.

Gray was supposed to start on Tuesday but due to two separate ankle injuries, he was scratched in favor of Jeff Hoffman, who allowed seven runs in two innings to the D’Backs.
In the podcast, we discuss this, the Rockies lack of depth, and we also delve into the Marlins.
The Rockies will face Marlins starters Sandy Alcantara (the Marlins lone 2019 All-Star), Hector Noesi, and Jordan Yamamoto this weekend. The Marlins will finish a tough two weeks of games this afternoon against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Miami today.
In their last 15 games, they have gone 3-12 as they have faced the Minnesota Twins, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves, and the Dodgers. Their pitching staff has pitched to a 6.36 ERA in that span.
The only problem for the Rockies is that in that same span, their team ERA is north of 7.00. The Marlins offense has not been good this season as they have a team batting average under .240 and a team on-base percentage under .300 but with both pitching staffs struggling mightily, we may see a few Coors Field games this weekend.
