Following a 6-3 victory on Tuesday, the Miami Marlins will look to win the three game set with the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night. Jarred Cosart will oppose Wily Peralta on the mound.

Pitching Matchup
PROJ ERA FIP ERA MARLINS Brewers ERA FIP PROJ ERA
3.50 3.72 3.78 Cosart Peralta 3.84 4.34 4.46

Jarred Cosart is coming off of a nice outing against the Braves, during which he went seven and two thirds innings, allowing three runs while striking out six. Milwaukee's offense has not been consistent of late, so Cosart may try and get the Brewers to chase offspeed pitches out of the strike zone.

Wily Peralta allowed three runs in six innings against the Cardinals in his last start. Against the Marlins in May, Peralta pitched six innings, allowing one run while walking two and striking out five.

Lineups

Today's Lineups

MIAMI MARLINS MILWAUKEE BREWERS
Christian Yelich - LF Carlos Gomez - CF
Donovan Solano - 2B Scooter Gennett - 2B
Giancarlo Stanton - RF Jonathan Lucroy - C
Casey McGehee - 3B Aramis Ramirez - 3B
Marcell Ozuna - CF Gerardo Parra - RF
Garrett Jones - 1B Khris Davis - LF
Jarrod Saltalamacchia - C Matt Clark - 1B
Adeiny Hechavarria - SS Jean Segura - SS
Jarred Cosart - RHP Wily Peralta - RHP

Miami will use the same lineup from game two against the right-handed Peralta. Donovan Solano had an RBI hit Tuesday night, and late home runs from McGehee and Ozuna lifted the Marlins late. Look for Christian Yelich and Ozuna to continue to swing hot bats.

Matt Clark gets the start at first base for the Brewers.

Notes

-How will Cosart pitch? He has been one of the Marlins' most consistent arms since he was acquired, and has kept them relevant in the postseason race.

-Can Miami take the series? A series victory over a team competing for a playoff spot may give the Marlins the momentum necessary to make a late push.

Bold Prediction: Brewers def. Marlins 2-0
