At 5:10 pm, in Game 1 of the double-header, our selection is on the Philadelphia Phillies over the Miami Marlins.  After Aaron Nola won 17 games and finished 3rd in the Cy Young balloting for the Phillies in 2018, many people expected an even bigger season the following year.  But that didn't happen and 2019 was a bit of a regression for the then-26-year-old RH ace.  But so far, 2020 has seen a similar performance to the one that Nola put up two seasons ago.  In eight starts, Nola is 3-1 with a 2.74 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 5.15 K:BB ratio (67 strikeouts vs. 13 walks).  Those last two numbers are the best of Nola's career to this point.  The Marlins will go with first-year southpaw Trevor Rogers (1-0; 3.00 ERA in three starts).  The Phillies are 5-1 in their last six games vs. lefthanded starters.  Meanwhile the Marlins are 2-6 in their last eight home games vs. teams with a winning record.  Finally, the Phillies are 12-2 (+9 games on the moneyline) in their last 14 as a favorite of -125 to -175.  Take Philadelphia.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
