Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves: Game 139 Thread and Ichthyomancy

New, 97 comments

The Miami Marlins enter a critical three-game series versus the Atlanta Braves, and Jarred Cosart will look to keep the team's slim chances at the playoffs alive.

The Miami Marlins will face the Atlanta Braves in what could determine if the Fish stay in the playoff race or fall completely by the wayside. The Marlins will have help in the form of the fiery hot Jarred Cosart, who faces Aaron Harang.

Cosart shut out the Braves this past Saturday, so he is looking for more of the same success this time around. Harang has had his struggles against Miami this season.

Aaron Harang - RHP Jarred Cosart - RHP

Justin Bour gets a start against the righty Aaron Harang, giving Garrett Jones a rest against the right-hander. Yeah, that's how not good he's been as of late.
