The Miami Marlins fell just short for their comeback bid in last night's 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians, but they still have a chance at the series win against the Indians. It will be Nathan Eovaldi versus Scott Kazmir in the series finale.

Nathan Eovaldi has a new, faster fastball. Scott Kazmir has new career after recovering his fastball velocity. Should be an interesting matchup, if anything because of the Kazmir comeback.

Updated the projections for the month of July, so brand new numbers show that this lineup is not very well-prepared for this matchup. Of particular issue is Christian Yelich batting leadoff versus a fellow lefty, though it remains to be seen whether he can handle that pitching.
