The Miami Marlins will play the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 3 of their series at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday night.

The Miami Marlins are 55-80 this season and have lost nine games in a row. Miami has lost the first two games of this series by scores of 3-2 and 4-3. The Miami pitching staff has a 3.89 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .242 opponent batting average this season. The Marlins offense has scored 476 runs with a .228 batting average and a .292 on base percentage. Miguel Rojas is batting .229 with six home runs and 31 RBI’s for the Marlins this season. The projected starter for Miami is Sandy Alcantara, who is 12-7 with a 2.36 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP over 190.2 innings pitched this season.

The Philadelphia Phillies are 75-61 this season and have won two games in a row. Prior to winning the first two games of this series, Philadelphia lost all three games in their series against the Giants. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 3.88 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a .241 opponent batting average. The Phillies offense has scored 636 runs with a .254 batting average and a .317 on base percentage this year. Rhys Hoskins is batting .249 with 26 home runs and 66 RBI’s for the Phillies this season. The projected starter for Philadelphia is Kyle Gibson, who is 9-6 with a 4.48 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 140.2 innings pitched this season.

Miami is 9-3 in their last 12 Thursday games and 0-6 in their last 6 road games. The under is 13-4 in their last 17 road games. Philadelphia is 9-1 in their last 10 Thursday games and 8-1 in their last 9 home games. The under is 5-1 in Philadelphia’s last 6 home games. Miami is 1-8 in these two teams last nine head to head meetings.

Sandy Alcantara has had a good season, but he has struggled in a few of his recent starts for the Marlins. For the Phillies, Kyle Gibson is coming off of a start where he allowed seven earned runs to the Giants. The Miami offense has not been very good this season, but I like the over here and expect the Phillies to get to Alcantara early.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
