The Philadelphia Phillies will play the Miami Marlins in Game 2 of their series at loanDepot Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Philadelphia Phillies are 47-43 this season and have lost four of their last five games. Philadelphia won Game 1 of this series by a score of 2-1 on Friday night. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 3.78 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a .238 opponent batting average this season. The Phillies offense has scored 417 runs with a .244 batting average and a .311 on base percentage. Kyle Schwarber is batting .211 with 28 home runs and 57 RBI’s for the Phillies this season. The projected starter for Philadelphia is Ranger Suarez, who is 6-5 with a 4.33 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP over 79 innings pitched this season.

The Miami Marlins are 43-46 this season and have lost three of their last five games. Prior to losing the first game of this series, Miami split a four game series with the Pirates. The Miami pitching staff has a 3.70 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .233 opponent batting average. The Marlins offense has scored 371 runs with a .239 batting average and a .304 on base percentage this year. Jorge Soler is batting .214 with 13 home runs and 34 RBI’s for the Marlins this season. The projected starter for Miami is Max Meyer, who is making his first appearance of the season.

Both of these teams have struggled in recent games, but Philadelphia was able to squeak out a 2-1 victory on Friday night. Both teams have pitched very well this season, but Philadelphia has been able to produce more offense. Philadelphia is third in the NL East standings, while Miami is fourth and 12.5 games behind the Mets. Ranger Suarez is projected to start for Philadelphia and he has allowed nine runs in his last 19.2 innings pitched. For the Marlins, Max Meyer will be making his season debut with the Marlins. I do think we will see a good amount of runs in this game, but I like Miami to bounce back and win Game 2.
