The Marlins will be in Philadelphia to take on the Phillies for game 3 Saturday at 6:05 ET. There is a double header scheduled for Friday.
The last time these teams met was on June 30th when the Marlins won 11-6.
I do not know who is going for the Marlins and Vince Velasquez is going for the Phillies.
The Marlins have not played all that well so far this year. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games.
They are last in the National League East with a record of 39-50. The Mets are 9 games ahead of them.
Miami lost 2 out of 3 games vs. the Braves this past weekend. They did get the win on Sunday by a score of 7-4. In that series, the Marlins scored 11 runs and allowed 14 runs.
Pablo Lopez went 6 innings and allowed 3 earned runs on Sunday. He was able to outpitch Ian Anderson of the Braves.
At the moment, we are unsure of who the starter will be in this game.
Pitching has been the best part of this team. They have an ERA of 3.43 which is 5th best in baseball.
Offensively, they have not been as good. They are scoring 3.97 runs per game which is 28th best across baseball.
Garrett Cooper and Jesus Aguilar have been some key hitters in their lineup.

The Phillies have yet to really find consistency this year. They have won 2 out of their last 3 and they hope to keep that going in this series.

Philly took 2 out of 3 in Boston this past weekend. On Sunday they won by a score of 5-4. In that series, the Phillies scored 21 runs and allowed 17.
On Sunday, Aaron Nola got scratched from his start due to COVID-19, so it turned into a bullpen game. A total of 6 relievers were used.

Miami Marlins vs. Philadelphia Phillies MLB Prediction:
The Phillies have been playing well as of late and this is a good opportunity for them to keep up the good play. I feel good with them in this one.
The Phillies are the better team and I think they will show that on Saturday. At this moment, I do not feel great backing the Marlins.
Vince Velasquez did get rocked around in his last start, but that was against a very good Boston lineup. I look for him to bounce back and pitch well in this one.
I like the Phillies on the moneyline in this one.
