With Giancarlo Stanton and Logan Morrison back in the fold, the Miami Marlins may have collected their most impressive win of the season. Stanton’s heroic home run in the eight inning put the Marlins up for good, as closer Steve Cishek did his part racking up a save. The Marlins played a great overall game, despite giving up an early 3-0 lead.

The Marlins hope to build of last night’s game with starter Kevin Slowey on the mound. His last appearance was out of the bullpen, when he pitched seven shutout innings in the Marlins 20-innings win. Slowey is not expected to be on a pitch count, going on just four days rest, but the team will watch him closely.

The Brewers will counter with Alfredo Figaro, making just his second start of the season. Figaro allowed four runs on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.
