Nationals minus $1.15 at Marlins

Patrick Corbin is a quality lefty. He began this season very cold. But he’s turned things around with a 2.79 ERA and 1.09 WHIP during his past three starts.

Miami is 8-15 versus lefty starters. They rank third-from-the-bottom in the National League in slugging percentage against southpaw pitching. 

The Marlins beat the Nationals, 11-2, on Friday. However, the Marlins had scored only five runs during their previous four games. 

Corbin is a proven commodity. Miami starter Zach Thompson is not. This is just his fourth big league start. He’s thrown only 12 innings so this could turn into a bullpen game for Miami. The Nationals are 9-1 in their last 10 games versus a righty starter. 

Thompson is going to have to deal with Kyle Schwarber, the hottest home run hitter in baseball with 13 homers in his last 14 games.
