This is a Free MLB prediction on the Marlins vs. Dodgers to go UNDER the total.
There are only two teams in Major League Baseball that have scored fewer runs than the offensively inept Dodgers. L.A. will host one of those teams tonight, taking on the Marlins in Game 2 of this series, with the Fish coming off a win in Game 1.
Miami sends Kevin Slowey to the mound, and he’s having himself a fantastic season so far. Slowey (1-2, 1.81 ERA) allowed just a pair of hits while shutting out the Phillies over seven innings in a 14-2 win his last time out. Prior to that he went eight innings, allowing one run on four hits in a 2-1 win over the Mets. He has held opponents to one run or fewer in five of his seven starts this season.
The Dodgers hand the ball to Hyun-Jin Ryu, he’s looking to bounce back from a loss to San Francsico his last time out. Lucky for Ryu, these Marlins aren’t quite as dangerous with the bats as the Giants are.
Ryu is 2-1 with a 2.41 ERA at home this season, while he’s 1-1 with a 4.68 ERA on the road.
I don’t expect to see a lot of scoring between these two clubs, especially with a couple of above average pitchers on the mound.
Take the UNDER.

Young right hander Jose Fernandez gets his first taste of a hitter’s park when the Marlins open a four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds. Tony Cingrani, the highly touted southpaw, will make his Major League starting debut for the Redlegs. Fernandez has been impressive in his first two starts, but he’s facing a far more capable lineup in the Reds and he’s still a kid who went from Single-A to the big leagues. His first two starts came against the Mets and the Phillies, two teams not exactly known for their offensive prowess. It’ll be interesting to see how he handles a packed house eager for the debut of his opponent, Tony Cingrani. We’re betting that he struggles in that environment and some of his numbers do need to level off. He’s gotten lucky on balls in play, allowing just five hits on 23 balls in play. That’s unlikely to continue. Furthermore, he’ll be pitching in a park where the ball actually carries pretty well.
Tony Cingrani makes his first Major League start after downright dominating Triple-A hitters. In 14.1 innings, Cingrani struck out 26 batters and allowed just three hits. Lefties tend to have a lot of success during their first trip around the league and a guy with Cingrani’s talent should be no different. He appeared in three games last season, so the nerves should be tempered a little by already having Major League experience.
The Marlins have scored just 32 runs in 15 games. They’re not scoring off of anybody and it seems unlikely that they would score off a guy with Cingrani’s talent. He may not need many runs to win, but the Reds certainly have an offense capable of scoring.

On Saturday the Free MLB Power Angle prediction is on the Mets. Game 954 at 1:10 eastern. The Mets are off a pair of home losses the past few days. However they should bounce back here nicely with Niese. The Newly appointed ace followed up his 21 innings 2 run spring training with a solid Opening day win over San Diego. Today he will oppose the Marlins. Last year he won 2 of 3 here vs Miami including an April win over today’s Marlins starter Ricky Nolasco. In his starts vs the Mets Nolasco has lost his last 5 and has a 5 era against them of late. In his last 43 innings vs the Mets he has allowed 21 earned runs. Miami has lost 14 of 20 as a dog in this range And 9 of the last 12 here. Look for the Mets to bounce back in this matinee affair.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are loaded on offense right now after making the huge trades they did to get Hanley Ramirez and Shane Victorino before the trade deadline. This team is going to be a force the rest of the way.
They also picked up Joe Blanton from the Phillies, and he’s posted a 1.199 WHIP in 22 starts this season. Blanton is 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.000 WHIP in his last three starts as well.
Blanton and the Dodgers have a huge edge on the mound over Miami starter Ricky Nolasco. The right-hander is 8-11 with a 4.95 ERA and 1.435 WHIP in 22 starts this season, and 0-3 with a 7.72 ERA and 1.960 WHIP in his last three outings.
Blanton is 7-4 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.260 WHIP in 12 career starts against Miami, while Nolasco is 0-2 with a 7.33 ERA and 1.886 WHIP in four career starts against Los Angeles. Bet the Dodgers Saturday.
