Jordan Yamamoto received the starting nod for the Miami Marlins, and he had success as he went 6 scoreless innings while striking out 10 batters. Tyler Heineman had a solid game from the plate for the Miami Marlins as he contributed 1 HR and 2 RBIs.

The Philadelphia Phillies come into this matchup with a 79-80 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent series finale against the Washington Nationals, 6-3. Jason Vargas received the starting nod for the Philadelphia Phillies, and he struggled as he gave up 4 earned runs in 4.1 innings. Andrew Knapp had a solid game from the plate for the Philadelphia Phillies as he went 2 for 3 with 1 HR and 2 RBIs.

The Miami Marlins have dominated the Philadelphia Phillies as of recent as they have won 7 of their last 9 meetings. The Miami Marlins may be one of the worst teams in the MLB, but that was to be expected while on the other hand, the Philadelphia Phillies have been awful as of recent as they have dropped 6 consecutive games. The Miami Marlins will be throwing arguably one of their best young arms in Caleb Smith who has been very good in his 2 starts against the Phillies with a 0.75 ERA. The Phillies are eliminated from postseason contention which could lead them to bench some of their superstars like Bryce Harper, but regardless this team will be deflated due to their season being over. Final Score Prediction, Miami Marlins win 5-4.
