New, 50 comments

The Miami Marlins are trying to break through in this series versus the Washington Nationals, and it may take Jarred Cosart to help get the team over.

The Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals battle again in the third of a four-game weekend series between the two squads. The Marlins got closer to the division-winning Nats yesterday, but still fell short in a 3-2 loss. Now the team sends out Jarred Cosart, who has been pitching brilliantly since arriving in Miami, to face Jordan Zimmermann.

3.45 3.61 3.67 Cosart Zimmermann 2.83 2.78 3.07

Jarred Cosart has been really good in a Marlins uniform, which has been an extremely surprising new finding. Jordan Zimmermann has been really good for the Nats, which has not been a surprise so far this year.

Lineup

Today's Lineups

WASHINGTON NATIONALS MIAMI MARLINS
Denard Span - CF Christian Yelich - LF
Anthony Rendon - 3B Donovan Solano - 2B
Jayson Werth - RF Casey McGehee - 3B

Ryan Zimmerman - LF Reed Johnson - RF
Wilson Ramos - C Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Asdrubal Cabrera - 2B Jeff Mathis - C
Jordan Zimmermann - RHP Jarred Cosart - RHP

Justin Bour gets another opportunity at first base, and at this point Miami may be considering him for a job next season, which might not be a bad thing. Reed Johnson takes right field tonight.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Nationals 3-2
