The Marlins hit the skids at the worst possible time and now find themselves more than five games out of the final Wild Card spot.
The Fish were nearly no-hit against Rich Hill and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday in a 5-0 loss and their offense continues to struggle.
Bringing runners home has been Miami’s problem all season long as the team ranks 3rd in hits but 25th in runs.
Giancarlo Stanton is having a season to forget and Marcell Ozuna has regressed terribly in the second half.
Jake Esch will toe the slab for the Marlins as they continue to use lesser-known guys to fill in the injury-riddled pitching staff.
Esch has only made two starts this season and has allowed five earned runs in 9.1 innings pitched.
Despite being more than 30 games under .500, the Braves have played a much stronger second half.
The team has looked much sharper since acquiring Matt Kemp, and the Braves are hoping he’ll be the catalyst to their success in 2017.
The Braves have some nice young pieces to build around, including Monday’s starting pitcher Mike Foltynewicz. Foltynewicz comes in with an 8-5 record and a 4.16 ERA.
He’s been superb over his last three starts where he’s allowed just five runs in nearly 20 innings. Foltynewicz could have an even better record if he was able to get some run support from his mates.
Unfortunately for him and the rest of the Braves, the offense has been non-existent for most of the season.
The team ranks 28th in runs and is dead last in slugging percentage and home runs.
