The Miami Marlins and Milwaukee Brewers will face off on Sunday afternoon in the final game of their three-game series. The Brewers have won the first two games of the series, and they are looking to sweep the Marlins for the second time this season.
The Marlins are coming off a tough loss to the Mets on Saturday night. They fell behind early and were never able to catch up. The Marlins are now 68-74 on the season, and they are 6.5 games out of a wild card spot.
The Brewers are coming off a 6-3 win over the Marlins on Saturday night. They got a good pitching performance from Corbin Burnes, and they were able to score some runs early on. The Brewers are now 82-60 on the season, and they are 3.5 games back of the Cardinals for the NL Central division title.
The Marlins will start rookie right-hander Sandy Alcantara in today’s game. Alcantara has been one of the bright spots for the Marlins this season. He is 12-6 with a 3.01 ERA. The Brewers will start left-hander Eric Lauer in today’s game. Lauer is 9-10 with a 3.85 ERA this season.
The Marlins will need to get off to a good start today if they want to avoid a sweep by the Brewers. They will also need to get some production from their offense, which has been struggling lately. The Brewers are the better team on paper, but the Marlins could surprise them if they play their best game.
