Tom Koehler's last start was a smashing success. The Miami Marlins are hoping for more of the same tonight.
The Fish will take on the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second of a three-game series. Since the Marlins broke their scoreless streak, they have been playing excellent baseball, but the Pirates are actual National League contenders, so the team will need to continue to play as well as they did in last night's win.

Tom Koehler struck out seven Rockies batters over seven innings with no walks in his last outing. Charlie Morton is his old groundballing self in his first seven starts of the year. How will the Marlins get any hits when they can barely get the ball off the ground themselves? Can Koehler repeat his performance from last time out? These answers will probably not be answered tonight, but these guys will pitch at least.

The second, third, and fourth hitters in this lineup look pretty good. The first one is on a hot streak right now. Everything else? Pass.
Bold Predictions: Pirates def. Marlins 4-1
