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.

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.
|WASHINGTON NATIONALS||MIAMI MARLINS|
|Denard Span - CF||Christian Yelich - LF|
|Anthony Rendon - 3B||Donovan Solano - 2B|
|Jayson Werth - RF||Casey McGehee - 3B|
|Adam LaRoche - 1B||Marcell Ozuna - CF|
|Ian Desmond - SS||Justin Bour - 1B|
|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
