Lets start by saying that the marlins have been batting a lot better then the cardinals lately - 0.273 vs 0.233 a really big difference, and the only reason why the cardinals have been keeping a good register has to do with their starting pitcher line-up, not that much to be with the way they have been batting - so they have to rely on a great starting pitcher.
That is hardly the case tonight - in fact gonzalez (cardinals ) has been a nightmare in the only 2 games where he pitched so far - ERA of 9.65 and a WHIP of 2.144 - the problem is that he has dona a great game a a lousy one, he has done two bad games, so there is some consistency there, and there will be a lot of nerves tonight also. Miami marlins are sending Alvares to the mount, a quite regular and reliable pitcher with a ERA in the last 3 games of 1.35 and a WHIP of 1.2 - looking at the performances from Alvarez you can see he is regular very good in control pitcher, he won't be easy to score against.
bullpen is similar for both, but assuming Gonzalez wont say long in the game, Alvarez is better then Cardinals bullpen and that will be an advantage also, I am going big in the marlins.
