Cincinnati starter Tim Adleman was charged with six runs on six hits and four free passes over 4.1 frames to absorb the loss. The Reds offense consisted of six hits and three BB with Joey Votto and Adam Duvall smacking solo homers.

The Miami Marlins are not going to the playoffs so the next best thing would be finishing 2017 with a winning record. The Marlins have experiences a bit of a surge with four consecutive victories following Saturday’s win versus visiting Cincinnati. Both the pitching and hitting were on the same page with Miami starter Adam Conley giving up a pair of runs on five hits including two solo jacks through 7.2 innings pitched to up his record to 4-3. The Marlins logged nine hits and four BB with Christian Yelich clubbing a three run bomb while Giancarlo Stanton drove in two and scored two followed by a two run effort from Dee Gordon. The Miami Marlins give the series finale’ start against the Cincinnati Reds to Dan Straily. Straily has been struggling in back to back defeats where he has allowed a combined ten runs on 19 hits and four walks while serving up three homers in nine frames.
The under is 9-2-1 in Cincinnati last 12 road games and Cincinnati are 11-30 in their last 41 games on grass while the under is 19-7-1 in Cincinnati last 27 overall. Miami are 3-7 in their last 10 home games and Miami are 21-10 in their last 31 Sunday games and the over is 6-1-1 in Straily’s last 8 home starts. Cincinnati are 0-7 in the last 7 meetings in Miami.
I think the pitching is fairly close but the Marlins have the overall edge…
