Marlins try to get in the way of Diamondbacks

According to STATS
According to STATS

Miami Marlins at Arizona Diamondbacks

  1. The Marlins won three of four home games versus the Diamondbacks in early June, but have lost three of their last four road series played against Arizona. The Diamondbacks are 41-25 (.621) at home versus Miami all-time, their third-best home record versus any current NL team (114-63, .644, versus both the Rockies and Padres).
  2. The Marlins swept a three-game series versus the Mets at home earlier this week, their third sweep since August 10 after totaling three sweeps this season prior to August 10. Miami's three sweeps since August 10 are the third most in the NL, behind only Arizona and Chicago (four each).
  3. The Diamondbacks snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Padres, 13-7, in San Diego on Wednesday, their 19th game with at least 10 runs this season (tied with Colorado for second most in the NL; Washington -- 21).
  4. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 56th home run of the season on Wednesday, a single-season total that has been matched by just 12 other players all-time. The last player with more home runs in a single season was the Phillies' Ryan Howard in 2006 (58), and the last right fielder (based on primary position in season) with more was Sammy Sosa in 2001 (64).
  5. Adam Conley has allowed at least one home run in each of his last six starts, twice as long as the second-longest streak of his career. Conley has allowed nine homers over that span (since August 20), tied with four others for the most in MLB.
  6. Zack Greinke earned his 17th win of the season his last time out, the most by a Diamondbacks pitcher since Ian Kennedy went 21-4 in 2011. Greinke's 2.87 ERA on the season is the lowest by a Diamondback qualifier since Randy Johnson posted a 2.60 ERA in 2004 (Johnson finished second to Roger Clemens in NL Cy Young Award voting).
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 9/22/2017 thru 9/24/2017

The Miami Marlins have been eliminated from playoff contention, but they haven't stopped fighting.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are closing in on their first playoff berth since 2011, but they haven't stopped working to accomplish their goal.

That, in a nutshell, figures to be the mindset for the Marlins (73-81) and Diamondbacks (89-66) when they meet in Sunday's rubber game of a three-game series.

"This is September baseball," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told "When you are driving toward something as special as we are, you feel that moment."

So far, the series has been a hide-your-eyes type of nightmare for pitchers. The Diamondbacks won Friday's game 13-11 and Miami won 12-6 on Saturday.

On Sunday, the Diamondbacks will throw left-hander Patrick Corbin (14-13, 4.14 ERA) against Miami right-hander Dan Straily (10-9, 4.17 ERA).

Arizona's magic number for hosting the National League wild-card playoff game is one, which means the Diamondbacks can punch their ticket by simply beating the Marlins on Sunday -- no need to worry about what the Colorado Rockies are doing against the San Diego Padres.

But the Diamondbacks -- like every team lately -- are going to try to be extra careful with Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, who went 3-for-6 with four RBIs and a homer on Saturday. Stanton's homer was his major-league leading 57th of the season.

"He's been hitting everybody," Marlins manager Don Mattingly told when asked about Stanton, who this year has set franchise records for homers and RBIs (125). "He is capable of hitting two homers per game, pretty much."

Stanton, in fact, has two career homers against Corbin in just 14 at-bats.

But it's not just Stanton who Corbin has trouble keeping in the park. Corbin has allowed 50 homers the past two years in 55 starts. He has a career 4.14 ERA, but that mark sinks to 5.00 in his career in September.

In five starts against the Marlins, he is 1-1 with a 5.04 ERA.

Still, Corbin, who broke into the majors in 2012, is one win grom setting his career best with 15 victories. And his 32nd start, set to happen Sunday, would tie his career high.

This is Corbin's second full year after elbow surgery, and his biggest improvement has been his walk rate, which is down from 3.8 to 2.7.

Meanwhile, Straily has turned in his second straight double-figure win season. He doesn't have much history against Arizona -- 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in one career start -- but Straily wants to wipe out a 2017 trend in which he has been much better in the first half than he has been after the All-Star Game.

In reality, Straily has been strong in September throughout his career, going 10-4 with a 4.49 ERA. So perhaps this year's 5.45 second-half ERA and 6.86 September ERA are just aberrations.

But if Straily struggles a little bit on Sunday, he would truly appreciate a couple of those Stanton moon shots.

Stanton, though, said he doesn't go up there looking for long balls.

"If I go up there trying to hit homers, I would be terrible up there," Stanton told Fox Sports Florida on Saturday night. "I keep trying to put a good barrel on the ball."

As for his records set this year, Stanton said he doesn't have time for those indulgences at the moment.

"I think when the season is over, I can look at my numbers," said Stanton, a California native who has three homers and 12 RBIs in his past five games. "I'm feeling better. It's always good to be on the West Coast -- that locks me in."
