The Miami Marlins had low expectations coming into the season and they have the second worst record in baseball. The Marlins are 3-7 in their last 10 games, 25-52 on the road this season, and they are 34 games back in the N.L. East. As a team the Marlins are hitting .231 with Christian Yellich hitting .286, Giancarlo Stanton hitting .252, and Ed Lucas hitting .250. For Thursday’s game the Marlins start Henderson Alvarez who is 4-4 with a 3.97 ERA and 2-1 with a 4.24 ERA in his last three starts.

Washington is 21-8 in their last 29 games, 13-6 in their last 19 home games, and 4-0 in their last four games following a loss. Miami is 9-21 in their last 30 games, 3-10 in game one of a series, and 2-6 in Alvarez’s last eight starts. Miami is 1-6 in the last seven meetings of these two.

The Nationals are hot right now and with the big arm on the mound it makes this one an easy choice.
