The Miami Marlins will try and wrap up their series versus the Milwaukee Brewers tonight, with Nathan Eovaldi taking on Mike Fiers.

The Miami Marlins have a chance for a series win against the Milwaukee Brewers as the two teams fight to desperately stay alive in a close Wild Card race. The Fish have Nathan Eovaldi, he of the confusing struggling versus succeeding situation, versus Mike Fiers for the Brew Crew.

Pitching Matchup
PROJ ERA FIP ERA MARLINS BREWERS ERA FIP PROJ ERA
3.71 3.26 4.19 Eovaldi Fiers 2.03 2.71 4.35

Eovaldi has "struggled" to a 3.61 ERA in the last month and change worth of starts, but fans only see the negatives in his recent play. Meanwhile, he's also struck out 20.1 percent of batters faced with only eight walks in 42 1/3 innings (4.3 percent rate). Everything that Eovaldi has done in the last month has been spectacular, and there was supposedly some good reason for it, as Chuck Hernandez supposedly worked on lengthening his stride.

Lineup

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 Ryan Braun - RF
Garrett Jones - 1B Gerardo Parra - LF
Adeiny Hechavarria - SS Matt Clark - 1B
Jeff Mathis - C Jean Segura - SS
Nathan Eovaldi - RHP Mike Fiers - RHP

The Marlins are throwing out a pretty typical lineup for them, with the hopes that the offense gets a spark. Marcell Ozuna has certainly found a spark, as he has been on fire with homers in three straight games. The team would like Giancarlo Stanton to join in on the fun though.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Brewers 4-2
