The Miami Marlins were hoping that Josh Johnson could pull the Fish out of a recent slide that included losing two of three to the Atlanta Braves and getting swept by the New York Mets. The team was looking for Johnson to pull off the classic ace role of "stopper" to prevent the Marlins from sliding further in their losing skid.

That did not happen. In fact, for the Marlins, nothing seemed to happen in this game.

Johnson had an erratic outing that included seven strikeouts and five walks in six innings. He also gave up a home run to Martin Prado that really turned out to be all the Braves needed. That was the case because the Marlins' putrid offense, without Giancarlo Stanton and Justin Ruggiano, made Braves starter Paul Maholm look like Tom Glavine. Maholm whiffed six Marlins in almost seven innings, the Fish only mustered six hits, and the team was shut out again to the tune of 3-0.
