The Philadelphia Phillies need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Phillies have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Phillies have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. Didi Gregorius leads the Phillies with 39 hits and 23 RBI while J.T.

The Marlins have won five of their last eight games when scoring four or more runs. Jesus Aguilar leads the Marlins with 35 hits and 24 RBI while Brian Anderson and Corey Dickerson have combined for 64 hits and 33 RBI.

The Phillies are 5-2 in their last 7 road games, 12-4 in their last 16 games on grass and 12-4 in their last 16 overall. The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 games on grass, 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 23-49 in their last 72 during game 2 of a series. The over is 8-3-1 in Phillies last 12 Friday games. The under is 5-1 in Marlins last 6 home games. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Miami.
It's tough to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the first game, and it's even tougher without knowing the starting pitchers for this contest. However, the Marlins are playing some decent baseball as of late and the confidence is growing with this young club as they inch closer and closer toward a potential playoff spot. This is a big series to keep chipping away in the standings, and I like their chances at home. Give me the fish.
