Both of these teams have had rough seasons, but Miami is the better of the two teams. Washington has the worst record in all of baseball and has really struggled with their pitching. The Nationals have a team ERA of 4.99, which should help the Marlins score some runs. Miami’s offense has been very bad this season, so it will be interesting to see how they stack up against a poor pitching staff. Miami has owned the Nationals this season, winning 13 of the 16 games played. I am taking Miami at home in this game, despite their offensive struggles.
