Pitching Matchup
PROJ ERA FIP ERA MARLINS METS ERA FIP PROJ ERA
3.87 2.87 2.19 Eovaldi Harang 0.85 2.27 3.93

Eovaldi has consistently followed Jose Fernandez's typically effective performances with solid starts of his own, and will look to do the same against a solid Atlanta lineup. Eovaldi has to be able to get ahead with his fastball, which he did in his last outing against the Braves. In six innings, he gave up an unearned run while striking out seven.

Harang has been a consistent addition to the Atlanta rotation, and gave up one run in six innings of work to the Marlins in his last start.

Notes

-Can the Marlins win the series? Miami hasn't won a series since sweeping Seattle at home, but will have a chance to do so on Wednesday night.

-Will Eovaldi repeat past success? Eovaldi was efficient in his last start against Atlanta, but should look to get deeper into the game.
