German Marquez has gone the distance vs the Dodgers many times facing them a good amount of times every year. He's had a proper Spring Training pitching 6 innings (18 outs) in his last start and went for 6 innings in his first start of the season. Needless to say he is prepared to go deep. At this time last year he pitched against the Dodgers in LA on April 9th and went for 7 innings (21 outs) and proceeded to face them 4 more times last season covering in 4 of the 5.
One of my favorite parts about this play is that Marquez can eat some runs and still pitch. 2 of those covers he gave up 4 runs without being pulled so it's nice to know we'll have a little cushion. The Colorado bullpen has also worked a bit in the last few games and they won't be gun ho to use them. He has decent pitcher/batter matchups, the weather is giving us a nice 31% downtick for HR, 17% downtick for XBH and 20% downtick overall.
