The Miami Marlins and Houston Astros face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. The Marlins have won the first two games of this series, including on Saturday when they won 5-1. 

The Marlins sit with a 27-30 record overall and they have won five games in a row. The last five games the pitching has been good, and that has been the strength of this team all season. The Marlins offense and defense are both ranked 11th in baseball and the stats show they should really have a much better record. Jazz Chisholm is having a big season hitting 12 home runs and driving in 40 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Astros who sit with a 36-23 record overall but they have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, the Astros have scored only eight runs total. Yordan Alveraz is having a big season for Houston hitting 17 home runs and driving in 39 RBIs. The Astros have mostly leaned on the pitching to have success giving up only 3.05 runs per game.

On the mound for the Marlins is Edward Cabrera who sits with a 2-0 record and a low ERA of 0.75. In his last start against the Nationals he went six innings giving up two hits and one earned run. Cabrera has had quite the start to the season, but if the Marlins want to come away with a victory, he is going to need to have his best start yet. 

On the mound for the Astros is Justin Verlander who sits with a 7-2 record and an ERA of 2.13. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he went seven innings giving up six hits and one run. 

Justin Verlander has had a couple of bad starts this season, but those have been few and far between. In his last start against the Mariners, he went seven innings giving up only one run. The Marlins bats are going to struggle to score, and Houston will come away with the victory on the run line.
