The Miami Marlins need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Marlins have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Marlins have lost five straight when scoring three or less runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 187 hits and 41 RBI while Martin Prado and Christian Yelich have combined for 96 RBI. The Miami Marlins have won four of their last six home games. Adam Conley takes the hill, and he’s 4-1 with a 4.22 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. This is Conley’s second career game against the Phillies.
The Phillies are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 6-20 in Buchanans last 26 starts. The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-0 in Conleys last 4 starts. The Phillies are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Miami.
Both teams are looking forward to the offseason, so picking a side here is more like a coin flip. However, neither team is putting many runs on the board right now and Conley has pitched well, so the under looks like the play here.
