Free Picks: Service Plays for Monday, July 29

The Miami Marlins are hosting the New York Mets at the right time, as the kings of Queens arrive in South Beach mired in a three-game losing streak after getting pummeled by the Washington Nationals in our nation's capital.

After winning the first game 11-0, the Mets were outscored 20-3 in the last three games. Now to have to come down to Miami, to face a Marlins team that has won seven of the last eight meetings, that's trouble.

I won't even bother listing pitchers in this one, as the Fish have the right momentum flowing for this game, not to mention a five-game winning streak versus the Mets. Miami has won five of seven overall, and have also won five of its last seven at Marlins Park. And even though I won't bother specifying Jeremy Hefner or Jacob Turner in this one, make note the Fish have won Turner's last six home starts.

Lay the chalk in this one, as MIami is the right side.

2♦ MIAMI

Colorado at Atlanta
Play: Colorado

This is an important first step for Atlanta as they ease Brandon Beachy back into their starting rotation with the thought that he fills the void left by Tim Hudson’s season ending injury last week. Beachy is coming off of Tommy John surgery and will for all intent and purposes be unrestricted in this start as his pitch limit is set at 100. That suggests at least a six inning stint unless he runs into trouble with the Colorado bats or control issues. At Triple-A Gwinnett, Beachy walked 18 batters in 30 innings which creates the possibility of an early high pitch count. Colorado is about average in plate patience (7th in NL with 298 walks) but tonight they’re likely to make a concerted effort to run up his pitch total. Atlanta’s bullpen figures to be faced with back-end fatigue tonight and getting Beachy out in four or five innings will benefit the Rockies. Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa could also benefit here as the Braves are off of a high energy sweep of NL best St. Louis. Atlanta poured everything into that three-game set and the arrival of sub-.500 Colorado could produce a one night letdown. De La Rosa has sparked his team as they’ve gone 11-4 in his last 15 starts. The left hander is currently on a dominant roll posting a 1.09 WHIP and 2.18 ERA over his last seven starts allowing just one home run over those 41.1 innings. He’s also on a near three month road tear in which he’s recorded a 1.93 ERA and .188 BAA. Fully believe that Beachy will become a solid asset to Atlanta’s playoff push but like the way the situation sets up for the visiting Rockies in this one.
