This is a meaningless divisional game as far as the NL East standings are concerned, but it is a meaningful one from a fan perspective as 23-year-old Marlins right-hander Edward Cabrera makes his Major League debut.

Cabrera has posted double-digit strikeouts in his last two starts at AAA, but unfortunately, he meets a Washington lineup on Thursday that ranks sixth in the league in runs scored over the last seven days.

On the flip side, Josiah Gray (0-1) has found some real form over the last month allowing a combined nine earned runs across his last seven starts to go with a whopping 28 strikeouts.

The Nationals beat the Marlins 5-1 in the opener of their three-game series at loanDepot park on Tuesday evening. Tres Barrera and Ryan Zimmerman each homered and drove in two runs apiece to lead help Washington snap a two-game skid. 

The Nationals improved to 54-70 while the NL East-worst Marlins dropped to 51-75. 

Verdict

It wouldn’t be surprising if Cabrera flashes his potential, but with even money on offer, I feel more confident in the Nats doing some damage on the road.
