Washington Nationals vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 teams that have really not played great. However, I do like Miami in in this one.
To me, these teams are about even, but I feel that the Marlins have the advantage in this one. I do not feel great with the Nats here.
I look for Hernandez to be solid and for the Marlins to do enough against Corbin.
I like the Marlins as home favorites in this one.
