Miami will go with its usual right-handed pitcher lineup in game two of the series. Offense wasn't a problem for the Marlins in game one, and Miami will look for Giancarlo Stanton's hot bat to carry them.

Notes

-Can Koehler pitch well? The Marlins received a quality start from Brad Penny on Monday, but the bullpen's efficiency over the last few weeks of the season will be essential. Miami's starters must continue to go deep.
