Why you should back the Diamondbacks
Arizona has notable edges against Miami. On offense, the Diamondbacks are No. 2 in the National League with 27 home runs this season, and also ranks near the top of the league with a sterling 10.1 percent walk rate. Marlins starting pitcher Elieser Hernandez has allowed six home runs in 2022, most in MLB, and he has a 5.75 ERA in four starts.
On the mound, Arizona can lean on Madison Bumgarner. The 32-year-old veteran is a four-time All-Star and former World Series MVP, and Bumgarner is off to a tremendous start with a 1.17 ERA in five starts this season. Bumgarner has allowed only 1.13 base runners per inning this season, and left-handed hitters have a hideous .451 OPS against him in 2022. For his career, Bumgarner owns a 3.29 ERA with four times as many strikeouts as walks, and Miami is below-average in runs scored and strikeouts on offense this season.
Why you should back the Marlins
Miami’s offense is in a solid place in many categories. The Marlins lead the National League with seven triples, and rank in the top five in stolen bases (13), on-base percentage (.322), and walk rate (9.7 percent). Miami is led by a bonafide star in Jazz Chisholm, and the 24-year-old infielder has been one of the best players in the National League this season. Chisholm has a .313/.360/.657 slash line with four home runs, four stolen bases, five doubles, three triples, and 19 runs batted in this season. That comes on the heels of 18 home runs and 23 stolen bases in only 124 games last year, and he keys things for Miami.
In contrast, Arizona’s offense ranks near the bottom of the NL in myriad categories. The Diamondbacks have the NL’s worst batting average (.188) with bottom-three marks in on-base percentage (.278) and slugging percentage (.339). Arizona also has only 83 runs, third-fewest in the NL, and Miami has the superior bullpen by a substantial margin.
