The Miami Marlins are at a major disadvantage tonight, as perennial CY Young contender Greinke will be on the bump for the Dodgers. Tom Koehler will counter for the Marlins, but he should face some struggles going up against a primarily left handed lineup from the Dodgers.

The next two games should be more winnable for the Marlins, depending on how their starters perform. This should be encouraging, as two of the Marlins better ERA performers in 2015 will go in the final two games, in Dan Haren and Jarred Cosart.

I don’t actually like the chances of Haren continuing his smoke and mirrors act against the Dodgers. He’s due for a bad outing, given his ugly peripherals, and this could be the game he starts to regress to his true talent level.

I’ll go ahead and predict the Dodgers taking two of three from the Marlins, with the Marlins winning on Wednesday to avoid a sweep. The team will finish their road trip with a 4-6 record, which is not terrible, considering their opponents this trip.

Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton will each go deep twice this series for the Fish. Dee Gordon will take some frustration out on the Dodgers for trading him, by collecting two more 3 hit games.
