A pair of lower echelon MLB squads, that were playoff eliminated long ago, square off in Major League baseball action tonight as the Miami Marlins host the Atlanta Braves to open a three-game series in South Beach. Not much more than pride and a love of the game is on the line when the first pitch flies for this National League East Division duel at 7:10 PM ET on September 25, 2015, at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida. The hosts have a pitching advantage here.
Miami Marlins: Enjoying a solid September winning run
Although they endured a recent four-game stumble, Miami has quietly played some fairly decent baseball this month. September has been the Marlins best month this season as they are 13-8 with five games to play. Previously, Miami posted a season high twelve wins back in June. Prior to their 1-3 series stumble versus Washington, the Marlins won five straight series including two versus the NL Central leading New York Mets. The Marlins will miss the playoffs for a twelfth straight season.
Atlanta Braves: Have started to pull out of their dismal thirty-two day MLB slide
Looking like anything but a Major League Baseball team, Atlanta posted one of the worst records over a 32-day stretch in the history of baseball. From August 17 to September 17 the Braves posted a 4-26 record that included a 12-game losing streak. Since getting to .500 with a 42-42 mark on July 7, Atlanta has been on a horrendous 20-49 skid. Miami has inflicted some damage on Atlanta as the Marlins own a 10-6 season series lead. This is the Braves worst season since 1990.
Braves vs Marlins: Miami gets an advantage in the pitching matchup as RHP Jose Fernandez (5-0 ERA 2.18) faces RHP Ryan Webber (0-1 ERA 3.26) tonight. Missing chunks of the season due to injury, Fernandez has been solid when healthy as he allowed just 13 runs over 53.2 innings pitched during nine starts. Those numbers include a miniscule 1.20 ERA during five starts (four runs over 30 innings) at home. Braves rookie Webber has been solid in two of his first three career starts as he’s allowed seven runs over 19.1 innings pitched. Liking Fernandez more than anything else in this contest, give us the Marlins with a 500 unit wager on the money odds posted at William Hill.
