The Miami Marlins will travel to the Milwaukee Brewers' hometown and face their Wild Card rivals in a critical four-game series that may determine the Marlins' low chances of victory. Miami sends out Brad Penny versus Yovani Gallardo in the first matchup.

Brad Penny, well, we have issues with Brad Penny here. This will be his fourth start of the season with the Fish. If he pitches poorly again, does he deserve to get another look?

Gallardo is a different pitcher than what he was when he was closer to an ace-like starter, but he is still effective enough. His strikeouts are down, but he still has some whiff-able stuff for the Marlins' strikeout-prone batters to miss.
