The Miami Marlins will send Trevor Rogers to the mound this Wednesday and he should give them a decent enough chance to pick up a road win over a strong Philadelphia Phillies team who has not yet found their rhythm.
The Marlins have gone 3-3 in their last 6 games which included an 8-3 loss in the first game of this series with the Phillies where they fell apart late allowing Philadelphia to score 7 runs in the 8th inning.
With that loss the Marlins now sit 4.5 games back of the New York Mets in the NL East which is shaping up to be one of the most competitive divisions in all of baseball, and that will be especially true if this Marlins team turns out to be even a fraction as good as they were last year.
The overall batting lineup from the Marlins has been less then stellar, but don’t’ tell that to Jesus Aguilar, who has been absolutely on fire so far this season with 9 home runs and 32 RBI to go along with a respectable .274 average.
The Marlins do go with Trevor Rogers here as their starting pitcher and he is another guy who has been fantastic so far with a 5-2 record and a minuscule 1.84 ERA and he is also coming off a stellar performance against a decent Diamondbacks batting unit, as he restricted his opponents to just 1 run over 6 innings of work.
The Philadelphia Phillies are 4-3 in their last 7 games and really the way this roster is constructed I would be surprised if they are not competing for the division title this year despite their average start to the season.
The team did have a scare earlier this year when their star slugger Bryce Harper got hit by a pitch, but he is back now and was crucial in that comeback win in the first game of this series with the Marlins.
This team has also been boosted by the play of Rhys Hoskins, who is leading the team in home runs with 8 and is hitting a pretty good average of .256 considering where his career average numbers are at.
Zach Eflin will get the call to the mound for the Phillies and he has been serviceable so far this year with a 2-2 record and a 3.86 ERA with solid strikeout stuff, as he has already fanned 51 opposing batters.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
The Marlins certainly do have the pitching advantage in this game, but I think the Phillies batting lineup is at the very least able to limit how long Rogers goes in this game and if they can get 4 or 5 innings against this bullpen I think they win this game, as they are the overall better team.
