The Miami Marlins will seek to end their three game winning streak and get back on track on their 10-game road trip. The Marlins continue on further west to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight.
The Dodgers are losers of seven straight and are hoping to have former Marlin prospect Adrian Gonzalez back in the lineup tonight. A-Gon left last game with a neck strain, but was listed as day-to-day.
Matt Magill will get the ball for the Dodgers, going up against the Marlins promising ace in the making Jose Fernandez. Magill’s ERA is not indicative how he has pitched with the Dodgers. Fernandez will try to one up his best outing of his career last time out, when he tossed seven one-hit inning against the Phillies and racked up 9 strikeouts.
Derek Dietrich is back in the lineup for his second career game. He went 1-for-3 in his major league debut and hopes to put some runs on the board for the Marlins tonight.
Bold Prediction: Jose Fernandez makes a name for himself in the Hollywood spotlight, tossing seven shutout innings, striking out 8 Dodger hitters and even picking up a hit himself. Juan Pierre leads the Marlins with three hits and three more stolen bases in this game. The Marlins win 2-0.
