Game two of this series will once again be a night game and will be played by two struggling teams. These teams just met a few days ago, with the Cardinals winning two out of three in Miami.
Miami continues to have a dreadful season as they are currently 19 games under .500. The Marlins are near the bottom of both the National League and the MLB as a whole and are just looking to develop their young talent. One potential bright spot for the Marlins going forward is their young pitching prospect, Jordan Yamamoto.
Yamamoto is currently 1-0 on the season after pitching 7 shutout innings in his last appearance. He only allowed three hits as well so there is certainly hope for this young pitcher. Something that must happen is the Marlins need to provide some decent run support. If the Marlins offense struggles, it may have an effect on Yamamoto and he might not be as sharp as he was last time.
The Marlins offense have shown some bright spots this season, but overall they are near the bottom of the league. Only averaging 3.48 runs per game will not get the job done so if Miami wants to pull the upset, I think they need to at least score 5. Whether this is against the starter or the bullpen, as long as they score a decent amount they will have a chance with Yamamoto on the mound.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals are playing well and coming off a series win versus the New York Mets. They took three out of four in New York and now get to return home for a home stand. the Cardinals will start Jack Flaherty in this game, who is looking to improve on his 4-3 record. He also has a 4.28 earned run average, so things have not been exactly smooth sailing for him this year. He will mainly rely on the offense, who just crushed New York pitching to help him get through this matchup.
As I mentioned, the Cardinals offense was on fire this past weekend against the Mets. This is a good sign because Miami pitching is not exactly the greatest either. Look for them to jump on the board early as they face Yamamoto for the second time this year.

Free Miami Marlins vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
Yamamoto pitched a gem against the Cardinals last time in Miami, but I believe it will be a little different this time around. I feel that both offenses will struggle so my pick is for the total to go under.
