Miami Marlins @ Colorado Rockies Game Preview: Wednesday, July 24 8:10 PM EST (Game 99)

The Christian Yelich ERA started off booming for the Miami Marlins. Behind a dominant Jose Fernandez and a moonshot from Giancarlo Stanton. Yelich himself picked up three hits and drove in two runs for the Fish on the night.

Jacob Turner will be tasked with keeping the Marlins winning streak going tonight, he’ll go up against Jorge De La Rosa. Turner’s first start was a strong one, minus the four walks and two solo home runs.
