Miami is looking to take a game from the surging Dodgers in today's matchup. The Fish will turn to Tom Koehler (5-4), while Los Angeles has Clayton Kershaw (5-5) on the mound.

The Marlins have Tom Koehler starting today, and he is hoping to keep the powerful LA offense in check.

The Fish will have to face an ace in the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw, who has lost two of his last three starts.
