After winning just three of ten games at Marlins Park but opening the road trip with a 4-0 victory over the Phillies on Monday night, the Miami Marlins will look to take game two of the four game series on Tuesday night.

Pitching Matchup
4.37 4.76 1.50 Heaney Buchanan 4.95 4.88 4.88

Andrew Heaney is coming off of a solid effort in his major league debut, during which he went six innings and yielded one run while walking one and striking out three. Heaney is the lone lefty in the Marlins' rotation, facing a typically lefty heavy Phillies lineup.

David Buchanan pitched well his last time out, going seven and two third innings while giving up just a run and striking out four.


Today's Lineups

Jake Marisnick - CF Jimmy Rollins - SS
Derek Dietrich - 2B Carlos Ruiz - C
G. Stanton - RF Chase Utley - 2B
Casey McGehee - 3B Ryan Howard - 1B
J. Saltalamacchia - C Marlon Byrd - RF
Marcell Ozuna - LF Cody Asche - 3B
Garrett Jones - 1B John Mayberry - LF
Ed Lucas - SS Ben Revere - CF
Andrew Heaney - LHP David Buchanan - RHP

Casey McGehee and Giancarlo Stanton carried Miami's offense Monday, and will look to do the same on Tuesday. Jake Marisnick remains in the leadoff spot, with Ed Lucas replacing Adeiny Hechavarria at shortstop.


-How will Heaney fare? Miami's top pitching prospect pitched well in his debut, and will look to do the same in Philadelphia.

-Will the middle of the lineup remain efficient? Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee have been effective in the heart of the order for the Marlins.
