Miami Marlins @ Colorado Rockies Game Preview: Wednesday, July 25 3:10 PM EST (Game 100)


The Miami Marlins will conclude their four-game series with the Colorado Rockies later today, as they aim for the series win over the Rockies. A win today would put the Marlins at a 3-4 road trip, which is good considering they were swept by the Brewers the series prior.

Nathan Eovaldi, coming off of a shaky outing, will face off against Juan Nicasio. It is nice to see Nicasio back on the mound after the scare he received last season, when a comebacker nailed him on the back.
