Rockies right-hander German Marquez won Monday after he held the Dodgers to one run on two hits and two walks with five strikeouts across seven stellar innings.
Spin: Marquez was every bit as brilliant as opponent on the mound, the Dodgers' Walker Buehler on Monday, but the Rockies offense gave him one additional run of support once it finally got into a shaky Los Angeles bullpen. Marquez's lone blemish was a solo homer to Max Muncy, and he allowed just three baserunners otherwise. The 23-year-old Marquez has held his opponents to just two or fewer earned runs in four of his past five outings, notching three quality starts in that time. His strikeout rate is up a bit from 2017, and he's been considerably less homer-prone in 2018, though his walk rate has risen as well. His ERA should continue to trend down into the low 4.00s, so long as he can continue missing bats and inducing grounders at his current rates. (více...)

Marquez brings road success to Los Angeles
(PŘEDEVČÍREM 21. 5. 2018, 05:14:02, Official Colorado Rockies)
Righty German Marquez (2-5, 5.15 ERA), who gave up two first-inning runs but no more in his five less-than-efficient innings against the Padres in his last start, will carry a 2.25 road ERA into Monday night's start against the Dodgers and righty Walker Buehler (2-1, 267). Marquez pitched twice against the Dodgers -- one a quality start -- last year as a rookie. However, Marquez must address a 13.50 first-inning ERA. (více...)

Marquez yields two runs, fans five
(16. 5. 2018, 03:07:23, mlb.com)
Rockies righty German Marquez lost after allowing two runs on six hits (one homer) and one walk with five strikeouts in five innings Tuesday against the Padres.
Spin: Marquez was solid, save for a first-inning mistake to Eric Hosmer. After Travis Jankowski led off with a single, Hosmer crushed a 94-mph fastball 402 feet to right-center for his sixth homer on the year and a 2-0 cushion. The first-inning outburst was the extent of the Padres' attack against Marquez, who was sharp with his fastball and breaking ball. Although he was unable to secure his first win since April 16, he has now pitched at least five innings in four of his past seven starts. The 23-year-old will take a 2-5 record and a 5.15 ERA into his next scheduled start at the Dodgers on May 21. (více...)
