For Tuesday’s game, the Phillies will be bringing out lefty Adam Morgan for the start. Across 18 games (16 starts) and a 1-9 record, Morgan owns a 6.71 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP in 87 innings. Morgan took a loss to the Nats his last time up with 6.2 innings, three hits and two earned.
It’s easy to find the key hitters in the Phillies’ order. Odubel Herrera has hit 138 times with 68 runs and 42 RBI. Cesar Hernandez holds 128 hits with 53 runs and 36 RBI. Maikel Franco has hit 124 times with 55 runs, 22 homers and 73 RBI.
Over on the Marlins’ side, we’ll be seeing RHP Jose Urena in the starting role Tuesday. Urena has 23 games (seven starts) and a 3-5 record to his credit, posting a 5.40 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP in 60 innings. Against the Mets his last time up, Urena managed six innings, four hits and one earned for a win.
The Marlins have a few interesting hitters as well. Martin Prado leads the charge on 165 hits with 63 runs and 63 RBI. Christian Yelich has bagged 151 hits with 71 runs and 85 RBI. Marcel Ozuna holds 131 hits with 64 runs, 22 homers and 67 RBI.
The Phillies are 4-10 in their last 14 game twos of a series, and 0-4 in their last four Tuesday games. Philadelphia is also 7-19 in Morgan’s last 26 starts, and 1-5 in Organ’s last six starts with five days’ rest.
As for the Marlins, they’re 9-3 in their last 12 games against a left-handed starter, and 13-5 in their last 18 home games against a left-handed starter. Miami is also 1-4 in their last five Tuesday games, and 3-8 in their last 11 game twos of a series.
I’m not too thrilled with the Phillies here, so I’ll take the Marlins for the at-home victory.
