Game Preview: De la Rosa vs. Turner

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Jorge De la Rosa seeks his 14th win of the season as the Rockies try and end their 10 game road trip with a series win in Miami.

Colorado has not won a road series since early July and even though the Marlins have been the fodder of the MLB this year, a road series win would still be nice. The Rockies will turn to Jorge De la Rosa (13-6 3.21 ERA) who is having a remarkable season after coming back from Tommy John surgery.

De la Rosa is seeking his fourth straight win and 14th overall against a Marlins team that he has won his last three starts against. In his career, he is just 4-4 with a 5.33 ERA against the Fish, but he will look to continue his strong pitching against a Marlins lineup that has failed to produce runs consistently all year. With a victory, De la Rosa would join Adam Wainwright, Jordan Zimmerman, and Francisco Liriano as the only NL pitchers with at least 14 wins.

The Marlins will counter with young Jacob Turner (3-4 30.2 ERA). Turner has showed a lot of promise this year after being traded from Detroit in the deal that landed the Tigers Anibal Sanchez. Although he has failed to record a victory in his last seven starts going 0-3 and the team has gone just 1-6 during that stretch. In one career start against Colorado, Turner took the loss earlier this year despite pitching pretty well. He went six innings at Coors Field and only gave up two runs. However, he was bested that day by De la Rosa who pitched six shutout innings to get what was at the time his 10th win.

The Rockies will look for more of the same in a De la Rosa vs. Turner rematch at 11:10 MT in Miami.
