Marlins vs Phillies: NL Wild Card - Game 2 Predictions

After a compelling Game 1, the Miami Marlins lead the series 1-0 against the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL Wild Card. In this article, we'll analyze the upcoming Game 2 and explain our prediction.


Game 1 Summary

In Game 1 of the NL Wild Card series, the Philadelphia Phillies secured a 4-1 victory over the Miami Marlins. The game saw moments of brilliance from both teams, with solid pitching and timely hitting.

While the final score stayed under 8 runs, Game 1 showcased the offensive potential of both teams. This competitive spirit leads us to predict a higher-scoring Game 2.


Team Analysis

Miami Marlins

The Miami Marlins enter Game 2 with determination after a close Game 1 loss. Let's analyze why we expect more runs in this matchup.

Pitching Analysis

Braxton Garrett (#29), a left-handed pitcher, will start for the Marlins. Garrett has had a decent season and will be looking to bounce back from a tough Game 1. Braxton Garrett has a 2-1 record with an ERA of 4.50 and 19 strikeouts in 5 appearances against the Phillies in his career

Batting Analysis

The Marlins have hitters like Jorge Soler and Bryan De La Cruz who can make an impact. They'll be looking to capitalize on scoring opportunities against Nola.


Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies are riding high after their Game 1 win. Let's examine why the over of 8 runs is the best bet for this matchup.

Pitching Analysis

Aaron Nola, the Phillies' starter, has a history of facing the Marlins. However, the Marlins' hitters have the potential to put up runs, making the over of 8 runs a compelling bet. He has a record of 5-10 with an ERA of 3.58 and 158 strikeouts in 23 appearances versus the Marlins in his career

Batting Analysis

The Phillies have offensive weapons like Bryce Harper and Nick Castellanos, capable of delivering runs. Facing Braxton Garrett, they'll be aiming to exploit the Marlins' pitching and contribute to the over of 8 runs.



Our prediction for Game 2 is that the total runs scored will go over 8. Here's why:

  1. Offensive Potential: Both teams showed their offensive capabilities in Game 1, and we expect this trend to continue.
  2. Pitchers' Challenges: While both pitchers have talent, they also face strong lineups that can put runs on the board.
  3. Momentum: Game 1's competitive spirit suggests a higher-scoring Game 2.

Considering these factors, we recommend betting on the over of 8 runs for this exciting matchup.


Game 2 of the NL Wild Card series promises to be a thrilling contest between the Miami Marlins and the Philadelphia Phillies. With both teams capable of scoring runs, the over of 8 runs presents an appealing betting opportunity.
