The Fish take on the Nationals at home again in the second game of the series.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

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.
