Arizona Diamondbacks Struggle Against Marlins
The Diamondbacks are 1-2 in the four-game series and will be looking to even it up tonight as they make their push for the playoffs. They’re hoping to sneak back up into that second wild-card spot and a win tonight would really help their odds.
The Diamondbacks will need to heat up on offense as they did in Saturday's game if they hope to have any chance of winning tonight. In their two losses to the Marlins this series, Arizona has scored two runs in a six-hit game and 1 run in a four-hit game. They will be facing the Marlins Caleb Smith, who has won two of his last three games and ha sonly given up three runs in that stretch as well. In their last ten meetings, the Diamondbacks typically outscore the Marlins by almost two runs per game while also drawing more walks and striking out less.
On the mound for the Diamondbacks will be Merrill Kelly, who hasn't had an amazing year. Overall he is 7-10 with a 4.22 ERA over 22 total games started. But in his last three starts, he is 0-2 on 14.1 innings pitched with a 5.65 ERA. He has only walked three batters and struck out fifteen in that span, but hasn't been able to keep teams from scoring as of late.
Late Season Surge for the Miami Marlins
The Marlins seem to be heating up as their season comes to an end with four wins in their last five games. There is no hope for the Marlins to make any sort of run for the playoffs, but the franchise will look to continue playing well and hopefully end the season on a positive note.
