SATURDAY NIGHT MLB MONEYLINE MASSACRE
Philadelphia vs. Miami,
04/13/2019 18:10 EDT,
Score: 3 - 10
Money Line: -148 Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Phillies put a 9-1 beating on the Miami Marlins on Friday. The Fish have now lost five in a row and have earned just three wins on the season. I think they'll come up short for a sixth straight game here, coming up against Philly right-hander Zach Eflin on the mound.
Eflin (2-0, 0.75 ERA) has allowed just one run through 12 innings of work on the season and he went 2-0 behind a 2.21 ERA covering 20 1/3 innings against the Marlins last season. Miami owns a .215 batting average on the season and has scored just a total of 34 runs here in 2019.
Caleb Smith (0-0, 4.09 ERA) will take the ball for the Marlins. The left-hander has not been good nor bad through his first two starts of the campaign, but that could easily change here against a Philly team that averages 5.82 runs per game.
The Phillies are 4-0 in their last four games vs. a left-handed starter, and Andrew McCutchen is coming off a 3-for-4 performance with three RBI and a homer. He is 2-for-5 with a homer in previous matchups with Smith.
8* play on Philadelphia Phillies.
