Having lost eight-of-ten, Miami looks to finish its year as a possible spoiler for the remaining wildcard hopefuls littering their schedule. Each of the Marlins’ final fourteen games come against a club vying for last-gasp postseason inclusion.
And after another bottom-rung season, Miami has designs to hold down other NL teams’ competitive goals.
Though, sporting MLB’s no. 30 offense, and a declining pitching staff (4.71 ERA, no. 20 MLB), those upset-minded notions look better in theory than practice. Further, with the NL’s worst record, considering their remaining schedule, barring upsets, this year’s Marlins could end with the fewest overall MLB wins.
Caleb Smith toes the mound tonight for Miami after losing six of his last seven decisions. Smith (8-10, 4.13 ERA) holds a July 29 victory over Arizona after pitching seven innings of four run ball that day. The Marlins provided their young lefty with excellent run support in his only 2019 start vs. the D-Backs, adding 11 runs to erase his shortcomings.
Smith is struggling over his last five outings, posting a 6.18 ERA, 0-4 record and 25 runs through 27 innings.
Recently in the thick of the NL wildcard scene, Arizona’s playoff chances are hanging by a thread entering play opposite Miami. The D-Backs are 5.5 games behind the league’s final postseason slot with 12 games remaining.
Even if the D-Backs win out, to nab the second wildcard they’d need plenty of help from several teams ahead of them. That’s not a likely scenario, and as such, Arizona may enter tonight’s contest deflated.
Rookie of the Year contender Alex Young (7-4, 3.38 ERA) was bumped off the hill recently by NYM. The Mets added six runs through two Young innings to cap a 11-1 September 12 win.
Starting tonight, the lefty Young will seek to re-introduce the habits which brought him three consecutive wins before his latest slip.
Arizona is 7-6 this year when Young opens.
