The Miami Marlins have a chance at a series victory after they snapped their six-game losing skid last night against the Atlanta Braves. The Fish have a chance to be the first team in some time to beat the Braves in a series, as Atlanta was previously on a 14-game winning streak.

Today, the Fish will send out the (so far) successful Henderson Alvarez versus Marlins killer Mike Minor.

Henderson Alvarez hasn't allowed a single home run this season. Jacob Turner was doing pretty well on homers until the Braves hit three off of him, so there's a chance Alvarez's future holds the same terrible promise.
