The Miami Marlins are looking to take advantage of momentum from Jacob Turner's spectacular start last night and continue their winning ways against the San Diego Padres. On the mound today is the hottest new thing in Marlins fandom: Nathan Eovaldi and his blazing fastball.

Andrew Cashner has been one of the best pitchers on the Padres as of late. Of course, the Marlins just beat the other one of the "best pitchers" on the Padres in Eric Stults, so hopefully the good luck on offense continues for the Fish. Meanwhile, Nathan Eovaldi's fastball has gotten scarier, and hopefully it stays scary today against the Padres' offense.

Yay, Justin Ruggiano's in the lineup! Aside from Jeff Mathis, this lineup is one of the best the Marlins can put up against right-handed pitching.


- I will be in and out of today's game, as I am getting myself accustomed to a new place in Ohio for rotations.
