The Miami Marlins remain scrappy despite not having the record they would have hoped for, but they look to cause a big upset and beat the Cincinnati Reds this Friday at the Great American Ballpark.
The Marlins come into this game off the back of 3 ugly losses as this pitching staff has just fallen off completely allowing their opponents to score 24 runs on them during that 3 game stretch and things get no easier for the Marlins pitching staff in this one.
The one good thing for the Marlins, is that they have been able to consistently put up runs over the last month or so and they now rank 24th in the league having scored 490 runs which is better then where they were.
Elieser Hernandez may be able to give the Marlins a chance to win this one, as he is having a nice season with a 2.84 ERA and he has been awesome in his last two starts giving up just two runs during those two contests.
Things have been a bit up and down recently for the Reds, but they still have all the pieces to make a run at a Wild Card spot, as it is looking like a tough task for them to track down the Brewers in first place as they now hold a 9.5 game lead in the division.
The Reds have leaned on their offense for most of the season, as their pitching staff can be a bit hit or miss at times, and they do have one of the elite offenses in the league when they are firing on all cylinders.
The one big recent loss for the Reds is that of All-Star outfielder Jesse Winker who is now on the 10 day injured list with an intercostal strain and he is key to this batting lineup, as he has a .395 OBP and that kind of production is not easily reproduced.
The Reds will counter Elieser Hernandez with a pretty good pitcher of their own in Sonny Gray who gets the call for this one, but he has not been quite as good as of late giving up 9 earned runs in his last 3 games.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction:
The Cincinnati Reds are in a great spot here to get the job done, as I think Sonny Gray will be able to go deep here and even if he is not perfect this Reds offense can score plenty enough to back him up and cover this run and a half spread on the runline.
