Martin Prado starts in the two spot, with Michael Morse returning to play first base. Miami produced offensively against the Nationals but had trouble coming from behind after the buillpen gave up late leads.

Notes

-Can Haren turn in a quality start? Miami would like to give its relievers some time off.

-Will Miami get to Hudson early? Hudson has had a notable amount of success in his career against the Marlins.
