Miami Marlins @ Colorado Rockies Game Preview: Tuesday, July 23 8:10 PM EST (Game 97)


If you are a Miami Marlins fan, there is plenty of reason to be as excited for tonight’s game as any during the 2013 Marlins season. The rookie phenom, Jose Fernandez, will be on the mound for this Fish for the first time since his breath taking performance at the All-Star game.

Also for the Marlins, they will feature their outfield of the future tonight, with Christian Yelich and Jake Marisnick joining Giancarlo Stanton, to give the Marlins one of the most exciting, young outfields in all of baseball. They will face Rockies starter, Jhoulys Chacin.
