The Marlins have been playing good ball and are slowly creeping up the NL East standings. They sit 3.5 games out of first place at the moment. The offense as a whole was off to a slow start for the Marlins, but has come on of late. Same with the pitching staff who has an average 3.70 ERA as a team. Today the Marlins will give the ball to Carlos Zambrano who is having a good season overall, but is coming off his worst outing of the season. Zambrano has only allowed 42 hits in 60 innings of work this season.
The Nationals are coming off an impressive sweep of the Braves this weekend. They lead the NL East by 2.5 games. The Nats have climbed into first by clutch hitting and a pitching staff which has been one of if not the best in baseball. Jordan Zimmerman gets the ball today for the Nats and the righty comes into the games with an impressive 2.47 ERA in 58 innings of work.
Miami is 7-1 in their last eight games following a loss, 18-8 in their last 26 games overall, and 4-1 in Zambrano’s last five starts. Washington is 4-0 in their last four games against a right handed starter, 6-1 in their last seven road games, and 6-13 in Zimmerman’s last 19 starts against the N.L. East. The Nationals are 16-35 in their last 51 games in Miami.
We really like the pitching matchup in this one and think the bats might be lagging a bit. Give us the under in this one but before wagering read online sportsbook reviews.
