Miami's offense was inconsistent in Chicago, but will look to get back on track against the Rangers. Ed Lucas will start at second base for the Marlins, with Justin Bour serving as Miami's DH in game one. Adeiny Hechavarria gives the Marlins speed out of the nine spot.

Notes

-Can the interleague success continue? Miami swept the Rays and Seattle Mariners and tends to play well against the American League.

-Will Koehler turn in a quality start? Although the bullpen is relatively rested following the off day Monday, the Marlins would prefer an extended outing from Koehler.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Rangers 6-1
