MLB: Sunday, August 27, 2017 at 1:10pm EST

Line: Miami -161

Total: 8.5

The Miami Marlins will clash with the San Diego Padres in the three game series finale Sunday afternoon from Marlins Park. The Padres will give the call to 33-year old left-hander Clayton Richard, and the Marlins will counter with 28-year old right hander Dan Straily. The Marlins own a 3-1 lead in the season series.

Richard Targets Second Road Win of Season

Clayton Richard will get the call for the 27th time of the year, looking to rebound from a shaky outing. Richard conceded four runs including three home runs in 5.2 innings to the Cardinals last time out, and finished with the no decision. The veteran left-hander has looked good in three out of his last four starts and is carrying a 4.89 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP accompanied with a 6-12 record in 160 innings logged. He has silenced the Marlins in his five career starts, posting a minuscule 1.99 ERA and a 3-1 record. Marcell Ozuna is 0 for 6 against Richard, while Dee Gordon is 1 for 6, and Giancarlo Stanton is 1 for 5. Yangervis Solarte is swinging a red hot bat, belting two homers along with eight RBI’s over his last six games. The 30-year old second baseman is having a decent season, hitting .263 with 14 home runs and 53 RBI’s. Solarte is 3 for 10 with one RBI against the Marlins this season.

The Padres weak lineup is averaging a Major League low 3.85 runs per game, and are hitting .234 as a team. The San Diego pitching has been subpar, recording a 4.61 team ERA, positioning them 20th in the Majors.

Straily Notches 10 K’s in Win Over Phillies

Dan Straily will get the call for the 27th time of the season, aiming for his second straight win. Straily notched the Quality Start in his latest performance, allowing three runs in six innings to the Phillies and earned the win to bring his record to 8-8. The veteran right-hander has been steady for most of the season, and now owns a solid 3.83 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in 145.2 innings pitched. He took on the Padres for the first time of his career early in the season and was solid, holding them to only two runs in seven innings and finished with the no decision in a game the Marlins won. Christian Yelich is red hot, accumulating eight RBI’s along with 10 hits over his last six games. The career .291 hitter has not been quite as productive as last season, and currently owns a .284 average with 15 home runs and 68 RBI’s. Yelich has collected a hit in 2 of 14 at bats with one RBI against the Padres this season.

The Marlins are scoring an average of 4.75 runs per game, ranking them 14th in the Majors, and feature a .266 team batting average. The Miami pitching owns a 4.60 team ERA, positioning them 19th in the Major Leagues.


The San Diego Padres are:

  • under is 6-1 in Richard’s last 7 starts against the NL East.
  • under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games against a right-handed starter.
  • under is 4-1-2 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record.

The Miami Marlins are:

  • No Key Trends

I am taking the under in this contest. Richard has silenced the Marlins throughout his career, allowing only seven runs in 31.2 innings, resulting in a minuscule 1.99 ERA. Furthermore, Straily continues to pitch well, conceding three or fewer runs in five straight starts, and he limited the Padres to only two run in seven innings earlier this season, so he should have no problem containing the worst offense in baseball.

Pick: Under 8.5
