The Miami Marlins have a chance at the series win versus the Washington Nationals, but the odds are terribly stacked against them. On their side, Jacob Turner takes the hill amid a mountain of recent struggles. On the other side, Stephen Strasburg ya'll.

The Marlins have nary gotten a decent performance from Turner since last month began, and he really needs to turn it up a notch as the season expires to avoid what happened to him at the start of this year. Strasburg has looked more human this season, but maybe it just feels that way because he is not being hyped in a major fashion. He has not been unhittable like he seemed a few years ago, but he is still very good.

Gianarlo Stanton gets a rare day off, as does Jeff Mathis, in favor of Justin Ruggiano and Rob Brantly respectively. Yeah, those two are totally just as important to this lineup.
