The Marlins are expecting a better outing from DeSclafani this time around, particularly in the home run department. He has given up three home runs in his 17 2/3 innings, but also struck out 14 batters with only three walks, so the results thus far are mixed.
Niese has had a dominant season thus far. The last time he faced the Fish, he threw seven shutout innings with six strikeouts and one walk in his May 5 start.

Miami is going with a different lineup in today's game against the lefty Niese. Reed Johnson, Jeff Baker, and Jeff Mathis get in the lineup, and Derek Dietrich has returned to the lineup after Rafael Furcal was forced back onto the disabled list. Hooray for Dietrich!
The Mets are playing Jon Niese eighth in the lineup, which is fantastic!
