In the point of fact, the right-hander had obvious problems in his last two starts, allowing 16 hits and 10 runs over 8 2/3 innings against the Rockies on July 5 (4-6) and the New York Mets on July 11 (3-5).
On the other hand, De La Rosa pitched really well in his previous start versus Miami, in which he gave up 2 runs on 6 hits and struck out five over nine innings in a 3-2 win at Marlins Park on May 18.
Ichiro Suzuki is hitting .500 (3-for-6) against him, J.T. Realmuto is 1-for-4, with a two-run home run, but Adeiny Hechavarria, Christian Yelich, Justin Bour, Martin Prado and Casey McGehee are a combined 5-for-23.
David Phelps (4-5 with a 3.86 ERA), who will start for Miami, pitched well in his previous start in July, as the right-hander yielded 5 hits and 1 run over six innings of a 1-0 loss against Cincinnati on July 10, with four strikeouts.
However, it should be noted that Phelps has posted an 8.44 ERA in his previous four road contests and is 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA in one start and a relief appearance versus Arizona so far in his career.
Paul Goldschmidt is 1-for-2, with a walk against Phelps, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is hitting .750 (3-for-4), with three walks against him, Nick Ahmed is 1-for-2, with 1 RBI, while David Peralta is 1-for-3, with 1 RBI.
The Marlins are still without Dee Gordon (.338 BA, 1 HR, 22 RBI) and Giancarlo Stanton (.265 BA, 27 HR, 67 RBI), while the Diamondbacks scored four or more runs in eight of their previous ten games at Chase Field, although they lost six of them.
I think that Arizona will win the opening game of this series with more than one run difference.
