After dropping two games against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Marlins’ record drops to 66-67. Despite this, they are only three games off of a National League Wild Card spot. If they can sweep the Nationals in this four-game set, it will mean a lot. The Marlins are 7-2 versus Washington this season. With 22 extra-base hits in those games, Miami has a.269 batting average.
The team is led by Luis Arraez, who has 12 hits. Despite having a losing record versus the Nationals, Jorge Soler does have four home runs. Against the Nationals, Soler has the most runs scored and RBI. The Marlins’ pitching staff has a 3.00 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 8.4 K/9. In their nine starts, they’ve had five good ones.
While Braxton Garrett’s season has been anything but consistent, he has turned up two excellent starts versus the Nationals. Across his two starts, Garrett has allowed just one run on four hits while striking out 11 and walking just one in 12 innings pitched and holding the Nationals to a.244 average. Those two starts would have been more than enough to help the Marlins win both games, but Miami only managed to take one of them.
When facing the Marlins this year, the Nationals have a batting average of.254. Lane Thomas has a team-high 10 hits, including three home runs, and he’s also scored six runs and driven in five.
The Nationals have 28 extra-base hits as a team this season versus the Marlins. Washington has a 3.94 earned run average (ERA) on the mound. They also have a WHIP of 1.36 and a K/9 of 6. Washington has won six games thanks to strong starts from their starting pitchers.
This year, Joan Adon has appeared in six games and started four times. Adon has a WHIP under 1.00 while having a subpar ERA. This indicates that he is getting lucky with some of the runs he is surrendering. The Nationals have won all four of Adon’s starts, including two that lasted the full six innings. In reality, Adon just started and pitched really well against the Marlins.
