The Miami Marlins are coming off of a tough sweep at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals, so they will look to recover against a team that they just beat in a three-game series recently. The Atlanta Braves will come to town and visit the Fish right before the All-Star break, and the Marlins will look to the same against them that they did last week.
