The Miami Marlins and New York Yankees face off on Friday in an interleague showdown in a game that means a lot to both teams.These are two teams who have played four games and each of the teams won two of the games.
The New York Yankees are a playoff team, but they don’t want to back into the playoffs but coming into this game they have lost two games ago against the Blue Jays. Two games ago against the Blue Jays they gave up 14 runs. The good news for the offense is they are fully healthy, and when the offense is on, it’s one of the best in baseball. Luke Voit has been the best offensive player for the Yankees hitting 21 home runs and driving in 49 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Marlins who’s magic number is two to clinch their spot in the postseason. The Marlins won Thursday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves but before that they had lost four games in a row. During that four-game losing streak they scored only nine runs and even on Thursday, they didn’t run up the score. Brian Anderson comes into this one having hit ten home runs and driving in 37 RBI’s.
Sandy Alcantara will get the start for the Marlins and coming into this game he sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 3.12.
On the mound for the Yankees will be J.A. Happ who has been strong this year sitting with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 3.25.
The over is 8-2-1 in the Marlins last 11 road games. The Marlins are 3-8 in their last 11 interleague games. The over is 5-1-2 in the Yankees last eight interleague games on grass. The Yankees are 11-3 in their last 14 games overall
These are two pitchers who have been good this year and that will continue in this game. Look for both teams to struggle to score in this game and that will lead to this game going well under the posted total.
