Washington Nationals vs Miami Marlins Free Baseball Prediction 6-20-17
As expected here at Pucking Hockey, the Miami Marlins found a way to pull off the win last night, continuing their hot streak. Now they will have to find a way to defeat left-hander Gio Gonzalez. Who is 6-1 with a stellar 2.89 ERA so far this season.
Gonzalez is a native of Miami, and supporting a record of 1-2 with a 4.26 ERA in four career starts at Marlins Park. Along with being 6-3 sporting a 2.04 ERA in 12 career starts against the Miami Marlins. While over his past three starts he has posted a .55 ERA.
For the Marlins it will be right-hander Edinson Volquez who is 3-7 with a solid 3.72 ERA. Volquez comes into this game winning three consecutive decisions going 3-0 and posting a remarkable 1.73 ERA. And has one no-hitter that happened earlier in the season.
In 8 career starts versus Washington, Volquez is 2-3 with a solid 3.77 ERA. Back in April, he faced the Nationals holding them to five scoreless innings.
Miami’s offense is the reason why they pulled out the come from behind upset last night. The Marlins were down six early in the game, but much like the Washington Capitals, the Washington Nationals play the same style. Come out strong, get cocky then choke. Especially in the playoffs/post season.
