The Miami Marlins fell just short of what could have been an epic comeback against the Atlanta Braves last night. The Fish stormed back from a 6-0 deficit to make it as close as 6-5 before losing 7-5. Today, the team is looking to recover from the disappointment of that blow and put up a better performance against Paul Maholm and the Braves. The problem is that the Marlins are sending Nathan Eovaldi, who has traditionally struggled against left-handed hitters, with which the Braves are filled.

Nathan Eovaldi cannot beat left-handers because he lacks the pitches necessary to do so. The Braves have a lot of left-handed bats. This does not smell good.
