The right-hander will make his 28th start of the season, and his 16th at Coors Field. When pitching in Denver, Márquez has been especially effective, going 8-2 with a 3.13 ERA.
He has struggled, however, in his last four overall starts, posting a 1-2 mark and 8.84 ERA while allowing seven home runs.
This will be his fourth career start against Atlanta. In those outings, he’s allowed 14 earned runs in 16.2 innings (7.56 ERA).
Colorado Rockies vs. Atlanta Braves prediction
Márquez struggled in August … but it’s September now and the right-hander is very comfortable pitching at altitude. Colorado has also been very comfortable playing at Coors Field. Since May 21, the Rockies are 31-11 when playing in Denver. No other MLB team has had more success in its home park than the Rockies during that stretch.
Expect another close game, but we think Márquez will show some of his Coors Field magic to help Colorado earn another victory.
