Get out the tiny brooms, because the Miami Marlins are going for a mini-sweep!

The Fish will look to take this short two-game series versus the Minnesota Twins this afternoon on Camp Day over at Marlins Park. Tom Koehler will go to the mound against Scott Diamond.

Tom Koehler will get another chance to keep his rotation spot, while Scott Diamond looks to improve on what looks like an awful season from another awful Twins pitch-to-contact pitcher.

Lineup

Yay, Justin Ruggiano is back in the lineup! He actually missed last night's game with a sore shoulder rather than a stern Mike Redmond benching, so at least the reason was legitimate. But his presence against the lefty Diamond was all but assumed thanks to his recent hot streak. And the rest of the lineup does not look too bad either, at least up until the sixth spot!

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Twins 4-3
