Pitching Matchup: Marlins RH Jarred Cosart (1-3, 3.67 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Carlos Frias (3-0, 2.13)
Miami and Los Angeles meet Wednesday night in the finale of their series as Los Angeles looks to stay hot. The Dodgers will shoot for their 4th sweep in 6 series attempts as they send Carlos Frias to the mound. Countering him will be Jarred Cosart, who will try to play stopper and try to avoid sending Miami to their 4th straight loss.
The Marlins nearly stole the opener of the series, only to be outdone by a walk off three run home run. After yesterday’s debacle of a game, the Marlins look to salvage the three game set with right hander Jarred Cosart set to toe the rubber.
Cosart has dropped 2 straight starts and the Marlins have dropped 3 straight of his starts.
In his past two starts, Cosart has gone a combined 9.0 innings, allowing 7 runs. He lost to Philadelphia 6-2 and then followed that up with a 6-0 loss to San Francisco.
This will be Cosart’s first career start against the Dodgers.
The lone bright spot in the Marlins lineup has naturally been Giancarlo Stanton who had two hits in Tuesday’s loss. One of those hits literally left the stadium as he blasted the 5th home run to leave Dodger Stadium ever.
As a team, Miami is averaging 4.12 runs a game.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers are not just one of the hottest teams in baseball, but games inside Dodger Stadium have been a struggle for the away team. Los Angeles brings in a 15-2 home record as they look to sweep their 2nd straight home set on Wednesday.
Los Angeles will send Carlos Frias to the mound as he looks to win his 3rd straight start.
Frias pitched out of the bullpen on consecutive days back on 4/26 and 4/27. Following that he was inserted into the rotation and has won both of his starts against Arizona and Milwaukee.
Against the Diamondbacks, he went 5.1 innings allowing 4 hits and no runs as the Dodgers blanked the Dbacks 8-0.
In his 2nd start, he received more than enough run support as the Dodgers blasted away for 14 runs in a 14-4 win. Frias went 5.0 innings allowing 6 hits, and just 3 runs.
This will be the first time he is taking on Miami in his career.
