The Miami Marlins are still on the hunt for one of the last two wildcard spots in the National League with 16 games to go in the season.

That night, starter Braxton Garett secured his ninth victory while throwing six shutout innings as part of the Marlins 2-0 victory. The Marlins are still a 1/1 game out of the final wildcard spot in the National League.

MatchPlug Prediction For Milwaukee Brewers VS Miami Marlins
The Miami Marlins are favoured in this pitching game of two 5-4 pitchers. Perez has a powerful strong hit-to-innings pitched ratio this season while House has stormed the bases with runners in his 19 starts this season. Miami has struggled with scoring this year but will get the best chance this afternoon against Houser.
Marlins’ starter Perez isn’t just good at keeping runners off base but he has an outstanding K/9 of over 10 heading into this game. The Brewers too are hitting only .235 during the day this season.
Prediction: Milwaukee Brewers Moneyline.
