The Major League Baseball is back in action on Sunday afternoon as the Philadelphia Phillies will clash with the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida in game three of a three-game series. The Phillies will start with Zach and the Marlins will give a chance to Jose Urena.
Philadelphia Phillies Form
The Phillies are one of the better teams in the National League East. Before the game, on Saturday they were leading the division by 1.5 games over the Braves. However, they took a step back as they lost the Saturday game against the Marlins with a score of 2-0. In the last 3 games, the Phillies won two, one against the Orioles and they also won the first game of the series against the Marlins. The Phillies are favourites in this series and they will aim to bounce back in this game.
Philadelphia has averaged 4.17 runs per game and has allowed 4.30 runs per game on the road so far.
Zach Eflin record against the Marlins stands at 0-1 with a 6.55 ERA in two starts, with both starts coming at the Marlins Park.
On the offensive side of the game, the Phillies are placed on the 18th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 4.37 runs per game, while also being 26th place in hitting at .237 and 17th spot in homers with 104. On the mound, they have some solid stats as they are placed on the 9th spot in the league in ERA at 3.80, while also being 9th place in WHIP at 1.24 and 8th in K’s with 843.
Miami Marlins Form
The Marlins are having a poor season so far. However, it seems that they are able to pull out some solid results from time to time. One of those moments came against the Phillies where the Marlins won with a score of 2-0. Nevertheless, this result did change much as they have lost 10 of their last 18 games.
The Marlins have averaged 3.53 runs per game and have allowed 4.16 runs per game at their home ground this season. Jose Urena record against the Phillies stands at 1-3 with a 4.54 ERA in 10 games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Marlins have been poor so far as they are placed on the 27th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.79 runs per game, while also being 15th in hitting at .245 and 28th in homers with a total of 78. On the mound, the Marlins are on the 27th place in the league in ERA at 4.78, while also holding the 26th place in WHIP at 1.40 and 20th spot in K’s with 778.
The Marlins have won the last game and that will give them confidence heading into this game. On the other side, the Phillies lost the last game and were not able to score during that defeat. I can’t see the Phillies playing another poor offensive game. The Phillies will aim to bounce back as they need to keep the pace with the Braves in their division. Go for the Phillies in this one.
