Marlins vs Astros Free Pick May 8, 2012

May 08, 2012

The Miami Marlins are now playing the baseball manager Ozzie Guillen knew they could. The Marlins have won seven straight and even though they inaugurated a beautiful new park earlier this season, the Marlins are playing better on the road than at home. With their seven straight wins, the Marlins are now 15-14 on the season. They will take on the Houston Astros, who are just 13-16 on the season, tonight in the second game of their three game series.

The Marlins defeated the Astros 4-0 in game one of the series Monday night. The Marlins received a great pitching performance from Carlos Zambrano Monday as he threw a three hitter striking out nine. Hanley Ramirez added his sixth home run and Giancarlo Stanton hit in his tenth consecutive game.

Ramirez has a hit in 7 of his last 18 at bats and in that span has hit two homers and knocked in seven runs. During his ten game hitting streak, Stanton is hitting .333 with six home runs and 12 RBIs.

Anibal Sanchez will go for the Marlins in this game. Sanchez is 2-0 on the season with an ERA of 2.43. He has given up two or fewer runs in all five starts this season and over his last three starts, he has lasted to at least the seventh inning.

The Astros have called up Aneury Rodriguez from their Triple A affiliate in Oklahoma City to pitch tonight. Last season the right-hander had a record of 1-6 with an ERA of 5.27 with Houston. He is 1-3 thus far in Triple A.

The current line has the Marlins as the favorite -155 while the Astros are at +140. The run total is 8. The Marlins will continue their hot streak and win this game behind the pitching of Sanchez and with the bats of Ramirez and Stanton. Look for the total to be OVER, as Rodriguez will be hit hard by the Marlins.
