The Miami Marlins face the Los Angeles Angels on Monday, April 11th, 2022 at Angel Stadium for game one of a two-game series. 

The Miami Marlins lost the rubber match of their three-game series at Oracle Park against the San Francisco Giants. The Marlins competed well in the series overall, covering the run-line as the underdog in all three games and winning one of them outright as well. Miami is built on strong, young pitching, and we got a taste of that this weekend as Alcantara, Lopez, and Rogers all got the starts against San Fran. The Marlins are a team on the rise, but it will be interesting to see if 2022 is the season the Fish can make the jump from young, promising talent to a contender in a loaded NL East division. 

On the other side, it was a very underwhelming first four games for the Angels as they lost three of the four to the Astros to start the season. An Angels lineup that boasted two of the best hitters in the MLB in Trout and Ohtani struggled to score consistently. In fact, the Halos only mustered up 10 runs in the four games, averaging 2.5 runs per game. The Angels will now have to face another tough pitching staff in the Marlins, but it will be the tail end of their rotation.

The Miami Marlins are projected to bring right-hander Elieser Hernandez to the mound for game one. Hernandez pitched lights out baseball in spring training striking out six batters in 6.0 innings without allowing a single run, but overall he did struggle a bit in 2021. Hernandez had a modest ERA of 4.18 last season, but his 5.38 FIP is what has me worried for him going into this season. 

The Los Angeles Angels are set to send Michael Lorenzen to the hill to make his Angels debut. Lorenzen pitched his first seven seasons in the big leagues for the Cincinnati Reds, and as we know, Great American Ballpark is not necessarily what you would call "pitcher-friendly". Lorenzen struggled mightily at times with the Reds, but the change of scenery and location could be the difference-maker in his career as a starter. 

I am going to continue to take the Marlins under as it hit in two of the three first games of the season and neither of these teams has looked very inspiring at the dish in 2022. Until the Angels lineup hits the way we all think it should, there is no reason for me to not take the under in a game that sets up to be low-scoring.
