The Miami Marlins are looking to salvage a split of this four-game series against the division-leading Washington Nationals, but it will be a tough order in front of them on their way to a potential split. Standing in their way is a Nationals offense that has done better against a Marlins staff that started off competing among the best rotations in baseball. Also standing in their way is Edwin Jackson, a pitcher who, unsurprisingly, has posted almost exact numbers to his performance from last season. Finally, standing in the Marlins' way is Carlos Zambrano, the team's starting pitcher, and his recent struggles.
Can the Marlins overcome all of this and pull out a win?
