Marlins Preview

The Miami Marlins are 5-7 this season and have won two of their last three games. Miami won Game 2 of this series by a score of 8-4 on Tuesday. The Miami pitching staff has a 5.40 ERA, a 1.44 WHIP, and a .252 opponent batting average this season. The Marlins offense has scored 38 runs with a .245 batting average and a .308 on base percentage. Garrett Cooper is batting .333 with three home runs and eight RBI’s for the Marlins. The projected starting pitcher for Miami is Edward Cabrera, who is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP over 6.2 innings pitched this season. 

Phillies Preview

The Philadelphia Phillies are 4-7 this season and have won three of their last five games. Philadelphia won Game 1 of this series by a score of 15-3 on Monday. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 5.65 ERA, a 1.59 WHIP, and a .272 opponent batting average. The Phillies offense has scored 49 runs with a .288 batting average and a .338 on base percentage this season. Alec Bohm is batting .341 with three home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Phillies. The projected starting pitcher for Philadelphia is Zack Wheeler, who is 0-1 with a 5.59 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP over 9.2 innings pitched this year.


Miami is 4-1 in their last 5 game three’s of a series and 2-8 in their last 10 Wednesday games. The over is 4-1-1 in Miami’s last 6 games. Philadelphia is 6-2 in their last 8 games against the NL East and 4-10 in their last 14 games. The over is 8-1 in Philadelphia’s last 9 games against the NL East. Miami is 4-11 in these two teams last 15 head to head meetings. 


These two teams have split the first two games in this series and will look for the series win in this matchup. Both starting pitchers have struggled so far this year and I think this game will be high scoring, just like the previous two. I am taking the over here. 

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