Nationals Lineup

  1. SS Trea Turner
  2. RF Adam Eaton
  3. 3B Anthony Rendon
  4. LF Juan Soto
  5. 1B Howie Kendrick
  6. 2B Brian Dozier
  7. CF Víctor Robles
  8. C Yan Gomes
  9. SP Austin Voth (3.58 ERA, 4.20 FIP, 26.9 K%, 29.8 Hard Hit% in 32.2 IP)

Notes: Watch out for Voth’s curveball. Albeit in a small sample, it he has a dominant .154 wxOBA off the pitch, thanks to a very high spin rate.

Marlins Lineup

  1. CF Magneuris Sierra
  2. SS Jon Berti
  3. 3B Starlin Castro
  4. C Jorge Alfaro
  5. 2B Isan Díaz
  6. LF Harold Ramirez
  7. 1B Austin Dean
  8. RF Lewis Brinson
  9. SP Pablo López (4.94 ERA, 4.34 FIP, 21.4 K%, 36.3 Hard Hit% in 102.0 IP)

Notes: Every player starting for the home team in this game is under 30 years old. The Marlins also did that a handful of times in August...Last chance for Brinson to go deep at Marlins Park in 2019. He stunningly only has two homers in Miami during his two seasons since the trade...Not including it in the Fish Picks, but what’s your prediction for the announced attendance today?
