The Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins face off on Saturday in a National League East showdown at Marlins Park. These two squads played a doubleheader on Friday and both teams were able to come away with a victory.
The Nationals have really struggled this season and their offense has been an issue a lot of the time this season. In the second game of their doubleheader against the Marlins the pitching staff really struggled giving up 14 runs total and they gave up three four-run innings during the game. In this game though if they want to win the offense is going to need to find a way to get going early and give Patrick Corbin some run support.
On the other side of this matchup is the Marlins who have been one of the biggest surprises of the season and in a good way. Even with the success, the Marlins have lost two of the last three games so the offense getting back on the right track was key.Brian Anderson has been the best player for the Marlins hitting nine home runs and driving in 34 RBI’s.
Patrick Corbin will get the start for the Marlins and coming into this game he sits with a 2-6 record and an ERA of 4.10,
Pablo Lopez will get the start for the Marlins and coming into this game he sits with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 4.02.
