Final non NL East game for Marlins
After facing the Brewers on Thursday night at Miller Park, the Marlins will close out their season with 17 games all against National League East rivals.
Miami’s postseason chances took a hit on Wednesday night with a loss to the Brewers. They are now back to 4 1/2 games out of the second Wild Card spot, and time is running out.
Still, there is plenty to play for in the final few weeks.
The Marlins are in third place in the N.L. East, but the Mets (winners of four straight) are one game back. Miami also is three games behind the Braves for second place.
The Marlins last finished second in 2009, which also was the team’s last winning season.
Miami is 27-32 against the N.L. East. If they are hoping for a late playoff push, or a winning record, they will have to do a better job in their division.
