Arrieta was solid in his last outing as he was able to put in a quality start and picked up his sixth win of the season in a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh. He went seven innings giving up six hits, two earned runs and one home run while he struck out eight and walked one.
In 96.0 innings of work, Arrieta owns a low strikeout (6.47 K/9) rate, but has done a solid job limiting free bases (2.81 BB/9) and the long ball (0.94 HR/9). The end-result is a solid 3.47 ERA, but a higher 4.08 FIP meaning his defense has made him look good.
Philadelphia has managed to play winning baseball in the past week as they were able to win four of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .253/.343/.376 to go with 17 extra-base hits and 34 RBI.
Chen was rocked in his last outing while he took his sixth loss of the season in a 4-18 blowout loss to the Washington Nationals. He put in 4.1 innings of work giving up seven hits, seven earned runs and one home run while he struck out three and walked two.
In 66.0 innings of work, Chen owns a low strikeout (6.68 K/9) rate, while he’s done alright limiting the free bases (3.68 BB/9). He has struggled with the long ball (1.50 HR/9) and stranding base runners (65.1% LOB%). The end-result is a high 6.14 ERA and a lower, but still terrible 5.08 FIP.
Miami has played losing baseball in the past week as they could only win three of their seven contests. During that span their lineup has been hot who is slashing .314/.387/.460 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 40 RBI.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction: Miami edges out Philadelphia at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Marlins +130
I expect this hot Miami lineup to catch Arrieta off guard and knock him for some runs. Chen may be coming off of a sluggish start, but for some reason Miami shows up whenever he faces Philadelphia. I’ll be backing the home squad.
