The Miami Marlins need a in after losing eight of their last nine games. The Marlins have scored four runs in their last three games and three or less runs in nine of their last 11 games. The Miami Marlins have lost eight straight games when scoring three or less runs. Dee Gordon leads the Marlins with 165 hits and 25 RBI while Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich have combined for 310 hits and 178 RBI. Dillon Peters gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. This will be Peters’ first career game against the Nationals.
The Nationals are 10-3 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series, 7-3 in Gonzalezs last 10 road starts and 6-1 in Gonzalezs last 7 starts. The Marlins are 9-3 in their last 12 during game 3 of a series, 1-7 in their last 8 vs. National League East and 1-7 in their last 8 overall. The Nationals are 4-1 in Gonzalezs last 5 starts vs. Marlins and the under is 20-8-1 in the last 29 meetings in Miami.
The Marlins look like a team that's run out of gas, and Stanton even said he thinks the guys are tired after playing night in and night out in hopes to get back to a .500 record. Miami is a hard team to back right now. Meanwhile, Gonzalez has been as solid as they come and has allowed eight hits and one run in his last 15 innings against these Marlins. I have to side with the Nats to get yet another win over their division rival.
