The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves face off again, and once again it will be Alex Wood taking the mound for the Braves versus Nathan Eovaldi for the Fish. Here's hoping it doesn't go exactly like the last time these two faced.
|PROJ ERA||FIP||ERA||MARLINS||BRAVES||ERA||FIP||PROJ ERA|
Nathan Eovaldi was excellent in his last start versus the Braves, as he went 6 2/3 innings and struck out six with only one run allowed on a solo home run by Evan Gattis. He was great, but Wood was even greater, as he went eight innings and shut out the Fish with a 12-strikeout masterpiece. If we get a repeat, it may be a nice outing by Eovaldi but a rough one for Miami's offense.
|ATLANTA BRAVES||MIAMI MARLINS|
|Jason Heyward - RF||Christian Yelich - LF|
|Phil Gosselin - 3B||Donovan Solano - 2B|
|Freddie Freeman - 1B||Giancarlo Stanton - RF|
|Justin Upton - LF||Casey McGehee - 3B|
|Evan Gattis - C||Marcell Ozuna - CF|
|Tommy La Stella - 2B||Jeff Baker - 1B|
|Andrelton Simmons - SS||Adeiny Hechavarria - SS|
|B.J. Upton - CF||Jeff Mathis - C|
|Alex Wood - LHP||Nathan Eovaldi - RHP|
The Marlins turn to their lefty lineup, and that includes smartly replacing Jarrod Saltalamacchia, even if it is with Jeff Mathis. Jeff Baker is also in as Garrett Jones gets a second straight night off.
Bold Prediction: Braves def. Marlins 2-1
