The Miami Marlins will look to build on their win on Saturday that snapped a six game losing skid while evening the set up at one win apiece. Derek Dietrich went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs, while Justin Bour added a pair of RBIs of his own, going 2 for 3 with a double. Marcell Ozuna, Christian Yelich and Miguel Rojas each added a double while J.T. Realmuto added a double in the win. Dee Gordon went 2 for 4 while Giancarlo Stanton contributed a base hit of his own in the win. Adam Conley got the win to improve to 7-7 this season, giving up three runs on five hits while walking three and striking out six over 5.2 innings of work. Dillon Peters will start the finale and is 0-1 with a 2.50 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. This will be Peters’ first career start against Milwaukee.
Milwaukee is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 5-17 in their last 22 road games against a team with a losing record while the under is 5-0 in Woodruff’s last 5 starts overall. Miami is 6-16 in their last 22 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 home games while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against the NL Central. The over is 21-7-2 in the last 30 meetings between these two teams in Miami.
Woodruff had pitched pretty well, allowing two or less in his first four starts before imploding with six earned in his last start. Miami has struggled a lot as a team, but I like what I’ve seen from Peters so far this season. This is a game I’d probably stay away from, but if forced to pick a side, the plus money with the Marlins at home is where I’m at.
