If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Thursday when the Miami Marlins and the Washington Nationals meet at Nationals Park.

The Marlins will trot Dan Straily out to the mound in this one. Right hander Straily has a 7-8 record and a 3.77 ERA this season.

It’ll be Tanner Roark toeing the rubber for the Nationals in this contest. Right hander Roark is 9-7 with a 4.82 ERA so far this season.

Straily lost his fourth straight start on Saturday despite allowing just two runs for the second consecutive time in a 7-2 setback at Atlanta. The 28-year-old rebounded from a disastrous season-opening loss to the Nationals to pitch much better against them the second time around, permitting one run on three hits in six innings of a no-decision on June 21. Matt Wieters is a robust 5-for-6 with two homers and four RBIs versus Straily, however the right-hander has handcuffed Daniel Murphy (1-for-11) – with the second baseman sitting out of the starting lineup for two straight days due to an ailing hip.

Roark improved to 3-1 with a 2.96 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his last four starts on Friday after picking up the win following a two-run, five-hit performance in a 4-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. The 30-year-old started his season on a high after yielding two runs on three hits in six frames of a 6-4 win over the Marlins on April 5 before the right-hander was shelled for six runs on as many hits over 2 2/3 innings at Miami on June 19. Like Dietrich, Dee Gordon (.389) and J.T. Realmuto (.348) have also enjoyed success versus Roark.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 148-moneyline favorites versus the Marlins, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Questions surrounding what had been ailing Ryan Zimmerman of late were answered in emphatic fashion in his last game, as the 32-year-old ended a 2-for-27 slump by belting a pair of homers to highlight a four-hit, five-RBI performance in a 10-1 rout. Zimmerman, who is now the franchise’s all-time RBI leader, aims to continue that momentum on Thursday as the Nationals conclude their four-game series against the visiting Miami Marlins.

Bryce Harper recorded his second straight two-RBI effort on Wednesday and his fourth two-hit performance in his last six outings to keep first-place Washington sailing along. The 2015 National League MVP has collected three homers, 13 RBIs and eight runs scored versus the Marlins this season, but is just 1-for-8 in his career against Thursday starter Dan Straily. While Washington holds a staggering 14-game lead over second-place Miami in the standings, it is just 6-6 in the season series. Miami’s Derek Dietrich saw his seven-game hitting streak come to a halt on Wednesday, but is 5-for-15 with one homer and four RBIs against Thursday starter Tanner Roark.

The Nationals were a 10-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Marlins. That made winners of bettors who got Washington at -163 on the moneyline, while the total score (11) was good news for OVER bettors.

Miami lost its last outing, a 10-1 result against the Nationals on August 09. Bettors who backed the Nationals at -163 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (11) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
