Two teams who cannot afford to dig themselves an early hole in the divisional races meet on Wednesday as the Diamondbacks and Marlins continue their series.
The Marlins got the upper-hand on Tuesday, as they rolled to a 7-4 win.
Arizona has to be a bit thankful for the spot they sit in. They sit in 4th in the NL West and with the Giants and Dodgers in your division, sitting only 3.0 games back is a blessing.
The Diamondbacks haven’t had many offensive problems this season, as they average nearly 5 runs per game, but it’s been their pitching, especially the starters, who have struggled. Arizona has allowed 5.33 runs per game this year and once again allowed a high number, as they allowed 7 to the Marlins.
Trying to change their fortunes, the Diamondbacks will send out Rubby De La Rosa. He’s been an interesting pitcher this year, as he’s made 4 starts, but also has 3 relief appearances. De La Rosa has gone 3-3 on the year with an ERA of 4.18. The LH has his best start of the season, allowing 0 runs and 2 hits while striking out 10 in 7.0 innings of work. He’s allowed just 1 run, while striking out 16 over his last 2 starts combined.
Like Arizona, the Marlins, have a tough road ahead of them in their division.
Miami will have to deal with Washington and the Mets if they want to capture a division crown. They’re already seeing the effects here, as they have a 13-12 record, but are 4.5 games out of first place. Right now, winning games and just staying within striking distance is the biggest key.
Trying to lead them to back to back wins, Jose Fernandez will take the hill on Tuesday. Fernandez is just 2-2 this year with a 4.08 ERA. He’s continued to battle his way back from Tommy John Surgery and some effects are being shown this year still. Fernandez comes in off a good start, going 6.0 innings allowing just 2 runs on 5 hits. Hernandez is 1-1 in 2 home starts this season.
