Miami Marlins vs Philadelphia Phillies Series Prediction
With both teams not playing postseason baseball this season, both the Marlins and Phillies will be wanting to finish the 2021 campaign on a high-note. While both teams have struggled recently, will the Marlins finish the season with a couple of wins here?
Expect Alcantara to put the finishing touches on a phenomenal 2021 campaign with a strong start Friday night, while others such as Chisholm, Sanchez, De La Cruz, and Diaz will look to cap what has been an impressive season for each.
The Marlins should finish the season on a high-note here, likely taking two-of-three from the Phillies at home this weekend.
Prediction: Marlins 2-1
