Miami Marlins vs Detroit Tigers Prediction

I’ll lean toward the Marlins here. Probably not touching it, though. Much of that is due to Manning’s last couple of outings. In those two Manning has given up a total of eight earned runs in 11.1 innings on 12 hits and four walks. He’s going to need a much better showing here if Detroit wants to stay in the game early.

As for the Marlins, on Sunday they had a wild victory after recovering from the early deficit. Josh Bell managed two runs, three RBI and a homer, while the last three pitchers racked up 4.0 clean innings, no hits, four walks and two Ks for the pen. Miami should have a shot at a win Monday if they can keep the bats going.
