Colorado Rockies vs Philadelphia Phillies (By: Mulder)
German Marquez comes from a gem. Indeed, he carried a no-hitter into the 8th but allowed a hit eventually. Was a strong outing nevertheless with 0 BB and 9 K. But a couple of things here. This was against the Giants who are lacking power and he pitched in a pitching friendly park indeed.
Of course, it is not sure if the Phillies can score 5 today, but There is no way that he can do this at Coors Field, just impossible, not going to happen.
In his only outing at home the Braves smashed him for 5 runs. Besides, in cases like this a no-hitter almost always results in a worse outing in the next one, unless you are called an ACE.
Moreover, Marquez posted a 4.15 ERA in 13 innings pitched against the Phillies last season.
But of course, also chances to get to that Rockies bullpen > 4.81 xFIP.
I cannot recall that any team get's an 4.5 line at Coors Field, so Marquez is highly overrated here, especially against a deadly Philly lineup, no matter what the outcome might be.
