The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves meet Tuesday in MLB action at Truist Park.
The Miami Marlins look for a win after losing four of their last six games. The Marlins have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games. The Marlins have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Starling Marte leads the Marlins with 11 hits and two RBI while Jesus Aguilar and Corey Dickerson have combined for 15 hits and six RBI. Pablo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 1.54 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Lopez is 2-4 with a 4.43 ERA and 43 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.
The Atlanta Braves look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Braves have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last seven games. The Braves have won three of their last five games when scoring four or more runs. Ronald Acuna Jr. leads the Braves with 17 hits and eight RBI while Travis d'Arnaud and Dansby Swanson have combined for 15 hits and seven RBI. Max Fried gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 9.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts this season. Fried is 0-1 with a 5.13 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 16-35 in their last 51 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games. The Braves are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The under is 4-0-1 in Marlins last 5 overall. The over is 5-1 in Braves last 6 overall. The Marlins are 5-21 in the last 26 meetings in Atlanta and 13-39 in the last 52 meetings.
The Atlanta Braves are obviously going to be big favorites at home with their better lineup and proven pitcher on the mound. However, the Marlins are slowly starting to get their swagger back after a couple of wins and they put together improved at bats late last night to pull out that victory in extra innings. Pablo Lopez is also a pretty good pitcher in his own right, and he's holding current Braves hitters to a .238 batting average with 27 strikeouts in 101 at bats. The fish will give you value this year in the underdog role. I'll take it.
