The Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at loanDepot Park. The Phillies have won the first two games of this series including 10-0 on Saturday. 

The Phillies come into this game with a 48-43 record overall and on Saturday it was five runs that was the difference as they secured the victory. The Phillies' strength this season has been the offense and they are averaging 4.69 runs per game which is 6th best in the league. Bryce Harper is still out for this team and it’s unclear when he will be back. Kyle Schwarber has hit 29 home runs and driven in 58 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Marlins who sit with a 43-47 record overall and on Saturday it was the pitching that really hurt them. The strength of this team overall has actually been the offense and they are giving up 4.21 runs per game. Jazz Chisholm has been the top offensive player for the Marlins but he is hurt and that has really hurt the offense so far this season.

On the mound for the Phillies is Aaron Nola who sits with a 5-7 record and an ERA of 3.35. In his last start against the St. Louis Cardinals, he gave up seven hits and five runs. 

Getting the start for the Marlins will be Trevor Rogers who sits with a 4-8 record and an ERA of 5.42. In his last start, he gave up 5.1 innings giving up six hits and three runs. 

The Marlins are 4-0 in their last five games on Sunday. The Phillies are 0-4 in Nola’s last four Sunday starts. The under is 7-1 in the Phillies last eight games on grass. The under is 3-0-2 in Rogers last five starts on Sunday. 

I really don’t trust either of these offenses. Nola is coming off a start where he gave up five runs while Rogers sits with an ERA of 5.42. Look for especially the Phillies to run up the score and that is going to lead to this game being a shootout. Back the over to cash.
