The Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins have a three-game series ahead at LoanDepot Park. Colorado is coming off an 8-3 win over the San Diego Padres on Sunday afternoon. This was a nice effort to follow up on a 5-4 win Saturday.
The Rockies also won the series opener in a 10-4 win on Friday night. It was a tremendous series for the Rockies at Petco Park.

They were not a favorite in any of those three games and made it look too easy on the road.
The Padres are reeling after that series and it isn’t because of the losses. Manny Machado exited against the Rockies with a leg injury in that series over the weekend.
Colorado has a lot of work left to do despite that successful series. They are 30-37 and 11 games behind the LA Dodgers for the lead in the NL West.
The Rockies are dead last in a competitive division. The Dodgers, Padres, and Giants are a big step ahead of the Diamondbacks and Rockies.
If the Rockies get KO’d in Miami, then everything that happened in San Diego will be forgotten about pretty quickly. The Marlins are entering this series at 29-36 with a 14-game deficit behind the Mets for the lead in the NL East.
Miami is showing nice improvement this season, but not up to par with the top teams in the NL East. There are still some things the Marlins have to work out before they have consistent success.
The Marlins pitching staff would look really nice on a team with an offense to back them up. Inexperienced Ryan Feltner and Daniel Castano are scheduled to get the call.

Rockies vs. Marlins Prediction:
The Rockies look to follow up with more success on Tuesday night. The responsibility on the mound to open this matchup is with Ryan Feltner. He is making his fifth start of the season in this one.
He didn’t have a good start to his career, as Feltner was raked across the coals for an 11.37 in 7 innings. Feltner could not get out of his own way in those two attempts.
He’s been in better shape this season, but is still looking to improve. The rookie was tagged for 9 hits, 5 walks, and 8 earned runs. Tough way to start off a career, but that doesn’t define a career.
Feltner is going into this one with an ERA of 4.85 and a 1.15 WHIP. He’s been fine on the road, with a 3.94 ERA and 1.06 WHIP.
It’s the bullpen that has been the biggest issue for the Rockies. They are third-worst in the majors, with a 4.67 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.
There is typically silence from the Rockies on the road offensively. They are hitting .235 on the road with just 2.99 runs per 9 innings.

Lefty Daniel Castano is getting the call for the Marlins. Is this another young stud that the Marlins will develop into a lockdown starter?
He made the first start of his major league career last week, and Castano was strong with 5 hits and no runs allowed across 6.2 innings of work. He had five games in his second season a year ago, with an ERA of 4.87.
Castano should look good again tonight. Fortunately, he’s at home and not at the hitter’s friendly Coors Field.
Look for the Rockies to have a letdown following a sweep of the Padres. They likely come down to earth in Miami after their best series of the year. Castano may not be perfect in this one, but he should have enough versus the Rockies.
