Know Your Foe: Oh look, it's the Marlins again

New, 3 comments

The Rockies get a quick second look at the Marlins, this time in Miami.

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

For the second time in as many weekends, the Rockies will face off with the Miami Marlins. This time, the teams will play a four-game weekend series in Miami.

The Marlins took two of three when the teams met last weekend at Coors Field, but promptly went on to get swept in a three-game series in Toronto while the Rockies wrapped up their 10-game homestand by taking two of three from the Cardinals.

Pitchers to watch

The Rockies will see two starters this weekend that they did not see at Coors Field in veterans Mat Latos and Dan Haren.

Latos makes his return from a stint on the disabled list with a start Saturday against David Hale. Latos had made nine starts this season, his first with the Marlins, with a 6.12 ERA in 42⅔ innings with 16 walks and 36 strikeouts.

Haren, who starts Sunday against Jorge De La Rosa, is also in his first season in Miami, but has seen much more success. He has pitched 75 innings in his 12 starts, posting a 3.12 ERA and 1.01 WHIP with 53 strikeouts.
