Get out the broom breakers, because the Miami Marlins are looking to break up a sweep.

Heck, the Marlins are looking to score a run in this series.

The Milwaukee Brewers have shut out the Fish thus far, and hopefully today's game brings a little bit of change. The offense needs to kick in for the Fish to win this matchup between Henderson Alvarez and Wily Peralta.

It's hard to tell which of these pitchers is more flawed, so it's about an evenly matched flaw-a-thon. I have my money slightly on Henderson Alvarez, as he lacks the control issues of Peralta, but Peralta can actually strike out hitters, so it may be a wash.

Lineup
Order Player Proj wOBA vs. RHP
1 Adeiny Hechavarria .270

4 Logan Morrison .355
5 Marcell Ozuna .301
6 Derek Dietrich .301
7 Justin Ruggiano .314
8 Rob Brantly .296

Well, the Marlins are now batting Adeiny Hechavarria leadoff. That is the current state of the Marlins' offense, and it is awful.

Bold Prediction: Brewers def. Marlins 5-2
