Matchup Summary

The Marlins have been playing putrid baseball for several weeks, and going head-to-head with the Nationals isn’t the cure. Their “rivalry” is lopsided regardless of circumstances, it seems. This slumping lineup didn’t have a shot against typical Max Scherzer filthiness on Friday night.

Is this finally the game that Wei-Yin Chen’s kooky home/road splits normalize a bit? Tune in at 7:05 p.m. to find out!

Thread Question: With more than three-quarters of the season complete, give me your best guess at what the Marlins final 2018 record will be.
