The MLB is back in action on Tuesday as the Miami Marlins will face Washington Nationals at the Nationals Park in Washington D.C. This will be the second game of a three-game series. Jeff Brigham will start this game for the Marlins and the Nationals will counter with Max Scherzer.
Miami Marlins Form
The Marlins had a poor season. However, they played well in the last few games as they have three wins against the Reds. Miami has averaged 3.95 runs per game and has allowed 6.19 runs per game on the road for the year.
The Marlins will now aim to regroup and prepare for the next season. Trevor Richards and Chad Wallach are one of the names on which the team will be built for the next season. These games are the perfect opportunity for the Fish to start the rebuilding process.
Washington Nationals Form
The Nationals had a high expectations for this season. They were one of the favourites and many expected that they will be dominant in their division. However, the harsh reality is that they will not be part of the postseason. It seems that they were never able to justify their role of favourites. An example for this was their last series against the Mets. The Nationals lost three of their four games against a poor Mets team. That how their season has been this year. The Nationals have averaged 4.92 runs per game and have allowed 4.53 runs per game here at Nationals Park this year.
Max Scherzer record against the Marlins stands at 11-3 with a 3.09 ERA in 18 starts.
The Marlins played well against the Reds and deserved those three wins. The had a poor season and now they can play without pressure in the final part of the season. On the other side, the Nationals had a poor season and their performances were below their expectations. They certainly need to play for wins in order to maintain their reputation.
