Coming off a 4-1 win last night, Miami looks to take the second game of their home series. The lineup will look different tonight without Michael Morse who was traded earlier today to the Dodger along with Mat Latos. Tonight Tom Koehler will take the mound against the Nationals starter, Doug Fister.
In Koehler's last start against the Padres he gave up no earned runs with seven strike outs over seven innings of work in a 4-0 win. His record this season against the Nationals is 1-1 with an ERA of 3.38.
Doug Fister has struggled since the All- Star break. He pitched for five innings against the Pirates in his last start giving up four earned runs in a 3-7 loss.
