After being swept by the Mets, the Marlins head to Turner Field to open a four game weekend series with the Braves on Thursday night. Jose Urena will take the mound in game one.

Pitching Matchup

Urena is coming off of a rough outing against the Padres, during which he allowed five runs (four earned runs) over five innings. His only career appearance against the Braves came in April, when he tossed a scoreless inning of relief in his major league debut.

Matt Wisler will be making his first career appearance against the Marlins.
