The Miami Marlins will go for the series victory today against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and the Fish will do it with a struggling captain on the mound. Nathan Eovadi takes the bump versus Josh Collmenter in this contest.

Pitching Matchup
PROJ ERA FIP ERA MARLINS DIAMONDBACKS ERA FIP PROJ ERA
3.83 3.32 3.75 Eovaldi Collmenter 3.98 4.10 3.71

Eovaldi has struggle as of late, having lost a lot of his strikeout touch from earlier this season. Miami would like to see him regain that form, and maybe he can do it against a largely ineffective offense for the Diamondbacks.

Lineup

Today's Lineups

MIAMI MARLINS ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
C. Yelich - LF Ender Inciarte - CF
Donovan Solano - 2B David Peralta - LF
G. Stanton - RF P. Goldschmidt - 1B
Casey McGehee - 3B Miguel Montero - C
Garrett Jones - 1B Martin Prado - 3B
Marcell Ozuna - CF Gerardo Parra - RF
A. Hechavarria - SS Didi Gregorius - 2B
Jeff Mathis - C Nick Ahmed - SS
Nathan Eovaldi - RHP Josh Collmenter - RHP

This is your typical lineup after an exciting night game in which Miami came back and won 2-1. Donovan Solano gets the start against the righty at second base, and Garrett Jones and Jeff Mathis return to the lineup.

Notes

- Can Miami maybe score some runs before the ninth inning? The Fish have only mustered three runs all series long, so they may need more to beat the D'Backs today.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. D'Backs 5-3
