The Marlins have slipped at the worst time possible and find themselves further and further out of the NL Wild Card race.
The Marlins are 3-7 in their last 10 games and have averaged just 2.8 runs in that span.
Injuries to Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Bour have prevented this team from reaching the next level, and guys like Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich who were phenomenal in the first half have really struggled.
The Fish will send Tom Koehler to the mound in this one as he looks for his 10th win of the season.
Despite not being a household name, Koehler has been surprisingly efficient over the last two months.
He comes in 9-10 with a 4.02 ERA but hasn’t been quite as good on the road. His 64 walks still rank fifth in the NL and he’s only walked 17 batters over the last two months.
The Tribe took care of business against the Marlins with a 6-2 win in the first game of this series and they’re doing their best to fend off the charging Detroit Tigers.
The Indians’ division lead is down to 4.5 games with 30 games to go, and the pitching is sure lead the way down the stretch just like it’s done all season.
One of those key starters has been Danny Salazar who comes in with an 11-6 record and a 3.88 ERA.
Salazar struggled in August with an astounding 12.41 ERA, though he closed the month on a positive note by allowing two earned runs and striking out 10 batters in 5.1 innings of work.
He’s also performed much better against the National League with a 2.49 ERA and a WHIP of just 0.91.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Marlins are 3-7 in their last 10 games.
- The Marlins are 6-4 in Koehler’s last 10 starts.
- Koehler finished August with a 3.50 ERA.
- The Indians are 43-23 at home.
- Salazar has a 0.91 WHIP vs. National League teams.
Free Miami Marlins vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
The Marlins’ lack of offense has devastated their playoff chances, and now they’ll have to face a pitcher who has dominated National League opponents.
And despite his recent struggles, Tom Koehler has been a surprisingly efficient pitcher in the second half.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 8.5
The Marlins can’t hit, and Koehler has had amazing control in the second half. This should be a low-scoring game.
