In Marquez's last start, he struck out nine Philadelphia Phillies' hitters in the first three innings.
You do the math -- that's a perfect 9-for-9!
Phillies hitters have struck out nine times in three innings tonight against Rockies pitcher German Marquez. Here’s each of them. pic.twitter.com/kUMCfgSqIg— BWanksCB (@BWCrossingBroad) September 27, 2018
Walker Buehler takes the mound for the Dodgers, and he's been legit in September going 1-1 with a 1.95 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP. The disadvantage for him, though, is that he just faced this Rockies team back on Sept. 19, and did well, but today will be the third time the Rockies have seen him since Sept. 9 -- in comparison, the Dodgers haven't seen Marquez since June 30, and he's improved a great deal since then.
Value -- that's the keyword of the day here at Dodger Stadium. Not many people are giving the Rockies a chance today, but that might be a mistake with their plus odds.
