Miami Marlins vs. New York Yankees: Game 66 Thread and Ichthyomancy

The Marlins look for another victory before heading off to New York for the last two games of this inter-league series against the Yanks.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

With a win last night, the Marlins knocked New York out of a tie for first in the AL East, and Miami themselves are still 7 games behind the Mets in the NL East. The Fish will look to start another winning streak tonight as they look for their fifth win in six days.

Pitching Matchup

PROJ ERA FIP ERA MARLINS YANKEES ERA FIP PROJ ERA
3.87
3.59
4.11 Phelps Eovaldi 4.13 4.07 4.60

Does the name "Eovaldi" ring a bell for anyone else? It should, because last December, current Yankees starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi was a Miami Marlin, until he was traded to New York for David Phelps. It should be interesting to see how these pitchers perform against each other tonight.

Phelps (3-3) is coming off his best outing of the season, eight scoreless innings against a top offense, the Rockies, on Thursday. He'll look to come through with yet another quality start.

Eovaldi (5-1) has found some success so far this season, and in his last start, he gave up only three runs through seven innings against Washington.

Stephen Drew - 2B Justin Bour - 1B
Didi Gregorius - SS J.T. Realmuto - C
Mason Williams - CF Derek Dietrich - 3B
Nathan Eovaldi - RHP

David Phelps - RHP

Martin Prado is still out of the lineup, but he is hopeful to return after this series.

Notes

-The attendance at last night's game was one of the highest of the season at 33,961. Can the Marlins beat that tonight?

-Yankees RF Garrett Jones is also returning to Miami, as he was traded from Miami to New York in the Eovaldi-Phelps trade.

Bold Prediction: Miami wins 3-1
