The Miami Marlins will begin a brutal 11-game road trip beginning on Thursday night at Coors Field as they take on the Colorado Rockies. Miami is currently sitting in last place in the NL East and will be looking to try and climb out of the basement on this road trip.
The Marlins have gone 4-6 in their last 10 games and in 79 games played in Denver against the Rockies, the team is just 30-49. Miami will try and improve on that record as well.
Both teams have released their Thursday lineups, so first, for the Marlins:
