Will update with trends once they're released.
It's always tough to predict the second game of a doubleheader without knowing the result of the first contest, and it's even tougher when neither team announced a starting pitcher for this game. I can only go off form heading into this contest, and I'd have to give the edge to the Marlins. The Miami Marlins have been the better team throughout the season and have found their offense in this series, mainly in the last two contests. The Washington Nationals continue to struggle finishing games and the offense has issues sustaining success. The Marlins have played like the better team this season and need to keep winning if they're going to lockup a playoff spot.
Give me the Marlins in the second game of the doubleheader, the team in better form and playing for something in the final week of the regular season.
