Most people may not have anticipated it but German Marquez has turned out to be one of Colorado’s most reliable starting pitchers in 2018.

He ranks second among Colorado’s starters in wins (11), ERA (4.21) and K/9 (9.62) and is on a roll of late.

Marquez has rolled off six consecutive quality starts coming into Thursday’s start and he’s only allowed more than two earned runs just once in that span.

Going a little bit beyond that, he’s accumulated nine quality starts in his last 10 trips to the mound, and in all of those outings, he picked up at least five strikeouts each time out.
