It's always tough to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the first game, which bullpen pieces were used up, etc. However, we did learn yesterday that the Marlins lineup for the most part is still intact despite all the COVID cases, and they're still capable of putting runs on the board. Despite a better than expected start, the Baltimore Orioles aren't a good baseball team and they showed some of that last night when they couldn't score a run against a depleted Marlins pitching staff.
Give me the fish.
