The Marlins have won their last four games at home, can they win their last home game of the season? After a 6-2 win last night against the Braves the Fish are looking to finish off their last home series with a sweep. In an afternoon game today Tom Koehler will face Shelby Miller on the mound.

Tom Koehler struggled last Tuesday against the Phillies, giving up three earned runs and seven hits over five innings of work. But before Tuesday night Koehler is 2-0 in September with only five earned runs.

Shelby Miller is one of the few MLB starters with fifteen losses this season. His past seven starts have all been losses and he hasn't won a game since May 28th. Last Monday against the Mets, Miller gave up two earned runs in a 4-0 loss.
