The Miami Marlins will look to recover from two rough games versus the Washington Nationals by facing off in a four-game series against the divsion-leading Atlanta Braves. I know, it's not much better.

Henderson Alvarez will kick things off tonight versus Kris Medlen.

The Marlins are banking on a good performance from Henderson Alvarez, who has been decent all season long. The Braves are looking for more of the same from Kris Medlen, who has not been as ridiculous as he was last season but has still been a strong part of their rotation.

Giancarlo Stanton is out for a second straight game with an ankle injury. Chris Coghlan and Justin Ruggiano are taking his spot, which is unfortunate, because it is hampering Coghlan's training time at third base.

Bold Prediction: Braves def. Marlins 4-1
