The Miami Marlins are looking to finish off this series with a victory and pull ever so closer to .500, and today it seems like they have a decent chance of doing just that. The Fish will send the team's best starter in the first half, Mark Buerhle, and they will do so while he is at his hottest. Buehrle has been unstoppable thus far in his last four starts, and he will face Paul Maholm.Pitching Matchup

The Marlins appear to continue to be platooning Justin Ruggiano and Greg Dobbs in right field and Logan Morrison and Austin Kearns in left field despite Ruggiano and Morrison deserving the lion's share of playing time. This set of decisions has been extremely frustrating.
