Aaron Nola gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 3.94 ERA and 70 strikeouts this season. Nola is 4-7 with a 3.23 ERA and 97 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.

The Phillies are 19-40 in their last 59 road games and 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series. The Marlins are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 8-3 in their last 11 home games. The under is 6-2 in Phillies last 8 road games. The under is 7-0 in Marlins last 7 during game 3 of a series. The Phillies are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Miami and 1-6 in the last 7 meetings.
The Philadelphia Phillies have a chance in this spot with a solid pitcher on the mound in Aaron Nola. It’s hard to back the Miami Marlins without knowing who is going to take the mound yet. However, the Marlins are the healthier team and have much more chances for offense. The Phillies have been riding the struggle bus with all of these injuries and scoring runs will continue to be difficult. I’ll back the Marlins at home.
