The Marlins found a way to get the job done behind Sandy Alcantara in game one and while I’m not one to try to continuously press my luck, I’ll take my shot here with the Marlins again. Miami’s playing with house money at this point as there were little expectations for the team coming into the season and now they’re one win away from the NLDS. Yu Darvish goes for the Cubs so it’s going to be an uphill climb for the Fish against a Cy Young candidate, but Miami got the job done in game one against Kyle Hendricks who is usually lights out at home and we’ve seen a lot of good stuff from Sixto Sanchez who starts for Miami here. Add in Darvish’s career 5.81 post-season ERA and I think we’re in business. I’ll take Miami and the plus money as my premium pick for this game.
