Jacob Turner is coming off one of his better performances of the season against the Milwaukee Brewers, during which he went six and a third innings and gave up eight hits and no runs while walking one and striking out a pair. Turner didn't face the Braves earlier in the season, as he was on the disabled list when Miami traveled to Atlanta.
Ervin Santana struggled in his last outing against the Red Sox, during which he went five innings and gave up six runs while walking three and striking out six. In his previous outing against the Marlins, Santana went six innings and gave up three runs while walking three and striking out five.
Our easy lineup tool is broken, but the usual gang is on board for today's contest.
-Can the Marlins add on late? Miami's inability to build on a lead hurt them in Friday's loss to the Braves.
-Will Turner turn in consecutive quality outings? Looking to become consistent, Turner's command is key against a quality offensive team like Atlanta.
