Sandy Alcantara (1-1, 5.79 ERA, 11 K) will make the start for Miami. The Marlins’ ace was roughed up in his last start, uncharacteristically giving up nine runs in four innings of work. Alcantara put together a masterclass in his last home start, tossing a complete game shutout gem versus Twins, so he should be able to bounce back here.

Corey's Free Pick
Miami found a way to win yesterday with Luis Arraez presence, and with Sandy Alcantara headed to the mound looking to avenge his last outing, the hosts are set up to bring the brooms out here. Alcantara is one of the best pitchers in the league, and he can be trusted to bounce back from a tough outing here. Back Miami to win their fifth straight game, and give the Under a look with Zac Gallen potentially turning this into a pitcher’s duel.
