The Miami Marlins quickly realized that they could not confuse the Milwaukee Brewers as the New York Mets, even without their best player in Ryan Braun. The Brewers were able to knock Ricky Nolasco around in his 5+ innings of work and win the ball game 6-0.
The Marlins hope to even the series by handing the ball over to Jacob Turner. He enjoyed a strong first start of the season, but was unable repeat that performance his last time out against the Philadelphia Phillies. Turner allowed four hits and walked four hits in his six innings of work, but luckily only allowed one run.
Willy Peralta will be on the mound for the Brew Crew. He was also hit hard by the Phillies in his last start, but his results looked worse overall than Turner’s. Peralta allowed five runs on seven hits and walked four hitters while striking out just two.

Bold Prediction: Jacob Turner struggles against a suddenly hot Brewers offense and the Marlins offense is held in check again, despite LoMo and Stanton being in the lineup. The Marlins lose 6-1.
