Marquez struck out nine, ending the game with a 4.34 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Marquez's splits aren't much different at home or on the road but the one thing that's certain is his inability to hold up. After he faces a batting order twice, he starts to get lit up to the tune of a .965 OPS that third time through.

Marquez struck out two, ending the game with a 4.19 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Marquez bounced back from the shortest outing of his brief career (three innings in a loss to the Chicago Cubs last Friday) to work into the sixth. ''He was a little erratic at times, but the stuff was good and he made some pitches when he needed to,'' manager Bud Black said. The 22-year-old Marquez has given up no more than two runs in six of his last seven outings, but he's failed to complete six innings in four straight.

Analysis: Marquez took a major step forward after being hammered for eight runs in four innings in a home loss to the Nationals in Tuesday's season debut. The 22-year-old still won't be a recommended option in Saturday's rematch with the Diamondbacks at Coors Field.
