The Marlins have had their hands full all week with the Phillies.
They look to take 3 out of 4 here after dropping Game 3 of the series on Wednesday. Philadelphia will try to earn a split deservingly after losing in extra innings in the first two games.
The Marlins have continue to hang around in the National League. However, if they hope to be true contenders for a Wild Card spot, beating the sub .500 teams is almost a must.
Miami has been rumored to be shopping around to improve prior to the deadline. One spot they could be looking for is starting pitching.
The starting rotation has been extremely inconsistent with the exception of ace Jose Fernandez. They’ll send one of their most inconsistent righties to the mound on Thursday in Tom Koehler.
The RH is 6-8 on the season with an ERA of 4.68. Koehler is making a strong case to get himself removed from this rotation, especially if the Marlins were to make a move.
He is 0-2 over his last 5 starts giving up 18 runs on 36 hits in just 24.0 innings of work.
He is 0-1 on the season against the Phillies in 2 starts.
Like the Marlins, the Phillies didn’t have many expectations this season.
However, unlike the Marlins, Philadelphia has completely fallen off after a hot start to the season and will be selling here as the deadline approaches. They have however given the Marlins fits this week.
A pair of extra inning losses headlined this 4 game set, but they finally held on Wednesday to grab a 4-1 win. With the win, they improved to 5-4 overall this season against Miami.
Philadelphia will send out Jerad Eickhoff here, who has been at the center of decision almost every start, going 6-10 on the season.
Eickoff has gone 4-2 over his last 8 starts and has given up no more than 2 runs in 6 of those outings.
This stretch comes after he started the season 2-8 over a 10 start span.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
Philadelphia continues to turn in solid efforts despite being completely out of the race.
They should have taken at least one of the two extra inning games to start this series off and with a pitching edge here, they should be able to get a deserving split here in the 4 game set.
