The Miami Marlins are coming off one of their worst losses of the 2012 season, and the team has to turn around and face Stephen Strasburg in the afternoon game. That does not sound like a fair proposition, and the Marlins should file an official protest.

But seriously, after last night's loss, the last thing the Marlins want to see is Strasburg versus RIcky Nolasco on the mound. Still, the Fish will attempt to salvage a second straight series split.

This cannot be good.


No lineup yet, we'll update before the game. We are expected to see Justin Ruggiano back in the outfield, likely in center field in place of Gorkys Hernandez.

Bold Prediction: Nationals def. Marlins 6-1
