This interleague matchup includes two teams with different situations here in early September.
The Miami Marlins season is all but done where they stand 11 games back of their division.
The Cleveland Indians are still fighting for a playoff pennant, they are currently 4.5 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers.
The Miami Marlins lineup has been struggling since losing Giancarlo Stanton. They are not led by Martin Prado who is hitting .319 with 40 extra base hits and has driven in 61 runs this season.
Christian Yelich is pacing him with a .306 average while hitting 33 two baggers on the season. Yelich has a team high 79 RBIs in the season. Dee Gordon has struggled since coming off of suspension.
In the 52 games Gordon has played, he is hitting .269 on the season with 9 extra base hits and only 10 RBIs. The Marlins look to go up against a tough Indians pitching staff.
The Marlins have Andrew Cashner on the mound and he has struggled this season. Cashner is currently 4-10 on the season with a 4.73 E.R.A. and 84 strikeouts.
He looked good in his last start but went down in a loss against the Kansas City Royals. Cashner pitched in 6 innings where he gave up 1 earned run on 4 hits. He walked 2 batters and struck out 4 in the loss.
He will look to get more run support on Friday.
The Cleveland Indians lineup hasn’t been hitting the ball as of late before the sweep of the Minnesota Twins. The Indians are led by Francisco Lindor on the season.
Lindor is hitting .313 on the year with 14 home runs and 65 runs batted in. Jose Ramirez is leading the Indians with 34 doubles to go along with a .308 average and 60 RBIs.
Mike Napoli leads the Indians in home runs with a hot August, he currently stands with 29 home runs to go along with 88 RBIs and a .259 batting average. The Indians lineup will look to get hot here in September.
The Cleveland Indians have Carlos Carrasco on the bump Friday. Carrasco was on the DL for some time this season, but he is currently 9-7 with a 3.23 E.R.A. and 132 strikeouts. He last got beat around in a short start against the Texas Rangers.
He pitched in 4 innings of work where he gave up 8 hits and 3 earned runs. Carrasco did strike out 8 and walked 1 in the win. Look for Carrasco to rebound in this one.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Cleveland Indians are finally coming off of a much needed sweep against the Minnesota Twins. I look for them to keep rolling after having a day off on Thursday.
I see Carrasco having a bounce back game in this one where he will take down the Marlins with ease. Cashner has been struggling all season and I look for that theme to continue on Friday.
Indians in this one on Friday and it should stay low.
