The Cardinals and Marlins will both be looking to bounce back from opening series losses when they meet for the first time Monday.
St Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals dropped two out of three to the Reds over the weekend. After taking down Cincinnati on Opening Day, the Cardinals surrendered 21 runs over the next two games.
The Cardinals suffered their worst loss of the series Sunday, falling 12-1. The Reds scored all of their runs between the fourth to seventh inning and dominated the Cardinals to take the series. The Cards did manage to put up a respectable 18 runs across three games.
Right-handed pitcher Daniel Ponce de Leon will make the start for St. Louis on Monday night. Ponce de Leon has had issues with high pitch counts throughout his career, so that is something he will want to avoid in this game. He went 1-3 with a 4.96 ERA across 32.2 innings in 2020.
After dropping a pair of close games to start the year, the Marlins caught a break Saturday and avoided a sweep with a 12-7 victory over the Rays. The Marlins erased an earlier deficit and tallied 14 hits to bury the Rays late in the game.
Starling Marte led Miami with four hits, while Garrett Cooper homers and drove in three runs. Pinch-hitter Adam Duvall added a home run of his own. Third baseman Jon Berti and catcher Chad Wallach each had a pair of hits in the win.
Left-handed pitcher Trevor Rogers is expected to start for Miami on Monday. He was called up the majors for seven games last season, going 1-2 with a 6.11 ERA across 28.0 innings. Rogers struck out the second-most batters of any Miami pitcher during spring training, earning a spot in the starting rotation
