Miami Marlins vs. Washington Nationals Prediction

The Miami Marlins exploded for 12 runs against the Nationals last night. I don't think the offense stops producing tonight. Josiah Gray will take the hill for the Nationals. He has a 4.71 ERA on the year but a 5.60 xFIP in the last 30 days. He's been a bit lucky, as he's allowed a BABIP of .217 in the last 30 days. Gray has allowed a .489 wOBA and .462 ISO to lefties in the last 30 days while also allowing a .271 ISO to righties in that same time frame. Meanwhile, the Marlins have a .171 ISO and wOBA of .335 in the last 30 days themselves with the projected lineup along with 24% of line drives collectively. The Marlins will only have one lefty in the lineup against Gray with Jesus Sanchez likely out due to injury. But that one lefty is Jazz Chisholm, who added two home runs last night. Righties like Garrett Cooper and Jorge Soler have also gone off against righties in the last 30 days. On the other hand, it'll be Sandy Alcantara, who has been absolutely elite this season. Alcantara has a 1.81 ERA with a 6-2 record. In the last 30 days, Alcantara has an xFIP of 3.60 with 28.2% of strikeouts and 5.6% of walks. Alcantara is also inducing 58.2% of ground balls and allowing just 8.8% of line drives in that same time frame. The Nationals have just a .152 ISO and a wOBA of .315 against righties in the last 30 days. Washington also has five batters striking out at least 23.2% of the time against righties in the last 30 days. That's not good news for Washington knowing they have to face Alcantara. Let's take the Marlins -.5 in the first five innings on the runline at -135. Alcantara has been elite while Gray has been far from it.
