The Miami Marlins need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Marlins have scored 10 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last nine games. The Marlins have lost four straight games when scoring three or less runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 105 hits and 17 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Adeiny Hechavarria have combined for 95 RBI. The Miami Marlins have won five of their last seven home games. Mat Latos takes the hill, and he’s 2-4 with a 5.37 ERA and 53 strikeouts this season. Latos is 5-5 with a 5.69 ERA and 49 strikeouts in his career against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 2-5 in Garcias last 7 starts. The Marlins are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in Latos' last 5 starts. The Cardinals are 3-5 in the last 8 meetings in Miami.
Latos has been solid since coming off the DL, and the fish have played their best ball as of late at home. I look for Miami to get the win here as a slight underdog.
