The Miami Marlins will look for the second win of this four-game series versus the Arizona Diamondbacks, and they will try to get it with Brad Hand taking the mound versus Trevor Cahill.

The Marlins will turn to Brad Hand, who had a series of nice starts in July after returning from injury but was otherwise horrific all throughout this season, both in the bullpen and as a starter. Trevor Cahill used to be a starter for these Diamondbacks, but he only recently returned to the rotation after a demotion to the bullpen at the beginning of the year.

Lineup

Today's Lineups

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS MIAMI MARLINS
Ender Inciarte - CF Christian Yelich - LF
Cliff Pennington - 3B Donovan Solano - 2B
David Peralta - RF Giancarlo Stanton - RF
Mark Trumbo - 1B Casey McGehee - 3B
Aaron Hill - 2B Garrett Jones - 1B
Alfredo Marte - LF Jarrod Saltalamacchia - C
Tuffy Gosewisch - C Marcell Ozuna - CF
Didi Gregorius - SS Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Trevor Cahill - RHP Brad Hand - LHP

For the second night in a row, the Marlins will turn to Donovan Solano instead of Jordany Valdespin in the lineup. I guess Valdespin is still paying his dues for the errors he committed two nights ago? More importantly, who cares, they're both bad.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Diamondbacks 4-3
