Tom Koehler has proven to be a consistent option as Miami's fifth starter, and will look to get ahead of a solid Rangers team. In his last start against the Rays, Koehler went five innings and gave up three runs while walking and striking out four.
In his last outing against Baltimore, Colby Lewis went five innings and yielded five runs while walking two and striking out four.

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.
-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
