After picking up their first series sweep of the season, the Miami Marlins will be trying to avoid being swept by the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday afternoon.
The team hopes that starter Jacob Turner can work the magic he worked in his season debut against the New York Mets on Friday. Turner hurled seven shutout innings, striking out three and walking just one. This will be Turner’s first career appearance against the Marlins this season.
The Phillies will counter with Cole Hamels. It has been a disappointing 2013 for Hamels thus far, but he has pitched well against the Marlins. Against the Fish, Hamels has pitched 12 innings, allowing just four earned runs on 10 hits. He has struck out 15 hitters and walking just three against the Fish.
|Lineup||Player||Current wOBA||Proj. wOBA (Rest of Season)|
|3||Derek Dietrich ||.303||.303|
|4||Marcell Ozuna ||.377||.307|
Bold Prediction: Jacob Turner delivers another strong start for the Fish, pitching seven innings and allowing just one earned run. Marcell Ozuna hits his second home run of the season and of his career. Marlins win 4-1!
