Losers of eight of their previous ten games, the Miami Marlins will turn to their top pitcher of 2013 in Kevin Slowey to look to end their losing streak. The Arizona Diamondbacks come into this game as winners of seven of their last ten games and will look to leave the Marlins offense freezing, as the temperatures in Miami continue to rise.
So, so mediocre in this lineup. Actually, mediocre would be a compliment for this group. The Marlins two best hitters have barley played above A-ball and their best power hitter is hitting closer to the Mendonza line than .250. There is a lot to be concerned about when it comes to the Marlins offense.
This lineup is a direct contrast to the Marlins. The Diamondbacks are a middle of the pack offense, but the Marlins offense makes them look like juggernauts.
