4.50 5.48 6.75 Turner Beckett 2.80 4.21 3.88

Turner is making just his fourth start of the season, and appeared to have better command in his last start. While his numbers remain inflated from a pair of poor starts, Turner went six innings and gave up one run while striking out four in his last start against the Padres.

Turner did pitch against the Dodgers on the last homestand and was knocked around, lasting four innings and giving up six runs, all of which were earned.

Beckett went six and two third innings and gave up one run to the Giants in his last outing.

A. Hechavarria - SS Yasiel Puig - RF
G. Stanton - RF Hanley Ramirez - SS

Garrett Jones - 1B Carl Crawford - LF
Marcell Ozuna - CF Justin Turner - 3B
Derek Dietrich - 2B Drew Butera - C
Jacob Turner - RHP Josh Beckett - RHP

The Marlins' late rally fell short on Monday night, and scoring runs against Beckett won't be an easy task. Miami scored against Beckett four times the last time the teams matched up.

Adeiny Hechavarria slides into the number two slot, and Derek Dietrich is hitting eighth for the Marlins, who have yet to recreate the offensive success they had on the eight win homestand.

Notes

-Can the Marlins end the losing streak? Miami has struggled on the road this year, and has yet to find a winning formula when playing away from Marlins Park.

-Will Turner turn in a quality start? Despite struggling against Los Angeles the last time he pitched against them, Turner has posted Miami's best start of the road trip with a solid outing on Thursday.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Dodgers 4-1
