The Miami Marlins will visit the Kansas Cit Royals for the first time since renovations were made at the beautiful Kauffman Stadium. The Fish, however, are visiting and looking for wins rather than vacationing, and they will try to do that tonight with Tom Koehler facing off against Wade Davis.

Koehler has had some surprisingly decent starts, and he is trying to keep his role as fifth starter as the season progresses. Wade Davis is in the same situation; after a dominant year in the bullpen, he is once again struggling as a starter. The good news is that his strikeouts are back, the same strikeouts that made him a top prospect.

My goodness this lineup. The good news is that at least Logan Morrison is back in there after a day with Placido Polanco batting cleanup.
