Marlins Vs. Rockies Final Score: Miami Loses Series Finale, 3-2

The Marlins weren't able to seize control of their four-game series against the Rockies as Colorado won Sunday's game at Coors Field, 3-2. This would have been Miami's third straight win after dropping the first game of the series, but the Rockies evened the score.

The Marlins jumped out to a 2-0 lead with their first run coming in the first inning off a groundout by Carlos Lee, which scored Emilio Bonifacio. John Buck homered to center field in the fourth inning to extend Miami's lead.

But all the Rockies needed was their three-run bottom half of the fourth to bury the Marlins. Center fielder Dexter Fowler came through with an RBI double and Jordan Pacheco added a two-run bomb to give the Rockies their defining lead.

Adam Ottavino picked up the victory for the Rockies, while Rafael Betancourt recorded the save. Josh Johnson was the losing pitcher.

Marlins vs. Rockies Lineup: Bonafacio Returns to the Lineup

The Marlins are going for their third consecutive victory, this time on the back of Josh Johnson, in an attempt to crawl out of the NL East cellar.

Emilio Bonifacio marks his return to the lineup following a brief stint on the DL with a thumb injury.

Johnson has pitched quite well as of late, but didn't get the run support needed for a win in his last start against the Phillies. He was credited with the loss after going eight innings and giving up one run on a leadoff home run by Jimmy Rollins.

Johnson has four quality outings in his last five starts, going 2-2 with a 1.60 ERA, 0.832 WHIP, and 33/9 K/BB ratio.

01. Emilio Bonifacio, CF
02. Justin Ruggiano, LF
03. Jose Reyes, SS
04. Carlos Lee, 1B
05. Giancarlo Stanton, RF
06. Donnie Murphy, 3B
07. John Buck, C
08. Donovan Solano, 2B
09. Josh Johnson, P

Marlins Vs. Rockies Game Preview: Miami Seeks 3rd Straight Win

The Marlins are hoping to record their third consecutive victory and take complete control of the series against the Rockies on Sunday. After dropping the series opener, the Fish have responded with wins in the last two games.

Giancarlo Stanton is still haunting the Rockies -- he's homered in all six games he's played at Coors Field. Even though these are teams playing more to stay out of last place in their respective divisions, Stanton's run in Colorado has been worth watching.

Josh Johnson (7-9, 3.73 ERA) will take the mound for Miami, while Drew Pomeranz (1-7, 5.04 ERA) gets the start for Colorado.

Take a look here at the game schedule and broadcast information:

Date/Time: Sunday, Aug. 19, 3:10 p.m. ET

Location: Coors Field - Denver, CO

Marlins Vs. Rockies Final Score: Fish Pull One Back In Colorado, 6-5

With a 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night, the Miami Marlins successfully made progress toward not being the worst team in the NL East.

Miami jumped all over the Rockies early in Denver, leading 6-0 after two innings by virtue of four RBI from Jose Reyes and a mammoth two-run homer from Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton became the first player in MLB history to hit a home run in each of his first six games at a ballpark.

From there, it was all about hanging on: Nathan Eovaldi allowed six hits and four walks but just one run in 6.2 innings; Chad Gaudin got the last out of the seventh but allowed two runs without getting an out in the eighth; Heath Bell pitched a perfect eighth; and Scott Cishek gave up two runs in the ninth, but hung on for the save.

The win keeps the Marlins a half-game back of the Philadelphia Phillies for fourth place in the NL East.

Josh Johnson will attempt to give the Marlins a third straight win on Sunday. Drew Pomeranz will start for Colorado. First pitch is at 3:10 p.m. Eastern.

Marlins Vs. Rockies Preview: Miami Looks To Take Series Lead Over Colorado

The Marlins took the second of four road games at Coors Field on Friday night by beating the Colorado Rockies by a final score of 6-5. On Saturday Miami will send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound to try and win their second consecutive game.

The right-hander has struggled on the hill for the Marlins since coming over from the Los Angeles Dodgers. Eovaldi is currently 2-2 with an ERA of 4.67 with Miami. He's familiar with the Rockies having once competed in the NL West, but in his two career starts at Coors Field, Eovaldi is 0-2 with an ERA of 6.52.

First pitch of Saturday night's game will take place at 8:10 p.m. ET.

Wade LeBlanc earned the win. The left-hander threw five innings and gave up nine hits and all five of the Rockies' earned runs in the game. Steve Cishek picked up the save, his eighth of the year

Marlins Vs. Rockies Game Preview: Miami Trying To Rebound And Get Out Of Last Place In NL East

The Miami Marlins are one-and-a-half games behind the Philadelphia Phillies for last place in the NL East. With the season slowly but surely dwindling down to the end, the Marlins are trying their best to stay out of the cellar. After falling in the first game of a four game series at Coors Field, the Marlins are hoping for a rebound against the Rockies on Friday night.

If the Marlins are going to rebound from Thursday's loss, they will need to do it with Wade LeBlanc on the mound. In his last start against the Los Angeles Dodgers on August 12, LeBlanc went seven innings and allowed only one run on six hits. But a lack of run support by the Marlins offense earned his second loss as a starter.

The Colorado Rockies, on the other hand, will send Jeff Francis (4-4) to the mound. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers on August 13, Francis went five and one-third innings, allowing three runs on six hits. It was enough to give him his fourth win of the season after losing his two prior decisions.

The game is scheduled for a first pitch of 8:40 p.m. ET from Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports Florida, with radio coverage provided by WAXY 790 AM and WAQI 710 AM.

Marlins Vs. Rockies: Miami Falls Short Despite Nolasco's Complete Game

Ricky Nolasco pitched a complete game and held the streaking Colorado Rockies to just one run through five innings, but it wasn't enough for the Marlins as they lost 5-3, dropping their fourth game in five days.

Nolasco took the mound Thursday after the Marlins stopped their three-game losing streak by topping the Philadelphia Phillies 9-2 on Wednesday. The Marlins looked to be on their way to another victory after taking a 3-1 lead after the top of the sixth inning, but Michael Cuddyer's two-run blast to left field tied the game in the bottom of the frame.

The Rockies took the lead for good in the seventh on the strength of a Josh Rutledge triple.

Rockies starter Alex White was unable to give the Rockies even five innings, but the bullpen stepped up where needed, and reliever Adam Ottavino recorded his fourth victory of the season.

The Rockies and Marlins will face off again tomorrow in the second duel in a four-game set as Wade LeBlanc takes the ball for the Marlins and Jeff Francis gets the call for the Rockies.

Florida Marlins Place Nick Green On 15-Day Disabled List

Miami Marlins infielder has been placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday after suffering a sprained left thumb against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Green injured himself on Sunday while diving for a ball at third base. Green's thumb still had some considerable swelling after a few days of rest, and the move had to be made.

Green played in only seven games for the Marlns this year after being called from Triple-A New Orleans earlier this month. Green batted .174 with only one RBI in 23 at bats.

Utility infielder Gil Velazquez has been promoted fromNew Orleans to take Green's spot on the roster. Velazquez played in 101 games for the Zephyrs this year, batting .314 with three home runs and 37 RBI.

To make room for Velazquez on the 40-man roster, outfielder Logan Morrison was transferred from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list, ending his season. Morrison went on the disabled list on July 29 with inflammation in his right knee.
