The Washington Nationals will play the Miami Marlins in Game 1 of their series at loanDepot Park on Friday night.
The Washington Nationals are 52-97 this season and have lost three of their last four games. Washington is coming off of a series loss against Atlanta, where they lost two out of the three games played. The Washington pitching staff has a 4.99 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, and a .266 opponent batting average this season. The Nationals offense has scored 568 runs with a .250 batting average and a .314 on base percentage. Lane Thomas is batting .249 with 16 home runs and 51 RBI’s for the Nationals this season. The projected starter for Washington is Josiah Gray, who is 7-9 with a 5.14 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP over 136.2 innings pitched this season.
The Miami Marlins are 61-89 this season and have lost four of their last six games. Miami is coming off of a series loss against Chicago, where they lost two out of the three games played in the series. The Miami pitching staff has a 3.93 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP, and a .243 opponent batting average. The Marlins offense has scored 537 runs with a .230 batting average and a .294 on base percentage this year. Miguel Rojas is batting .238 with six home runs and 34 RBI’s for the Marlins this season. The projected starter for Miami is Braxton Garrett, who is 2-6 with a 3.68 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP over 73.1 innings pitched this season.
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.
