A day after returning to the starting lineup Giancarlo Stanton is has been pulled out of today's starting lineup, Clearly still struggling Stanton will be on the bench while Craig Gillespie will start in right field. Following Adeiny Hechevarria's game winning double in the eight inning Derek Dietirch, who was batting .333, was hit by a pitch and suffered a left forearm injury. Dietrich is being replaced by Miguel Rojas.
Tonight's pitching lineup.
|Team||Starter||ERA||FIP||ZIPS Projected ERA|
Chen has only pitched passed the sixth inning only once in his past five starts, with his last being a five inning no decision against the Braves. However working in the Marlins favor is Nicasio's less ever more porous May, in twenty four appearances he boast a 7.55 ERA and 0-3 on the road.
The last two game of the series has nail bitingly close, despite winning the last two games the Marlins have yet to hit a home run in the series. With the injuries to the Marlins lineup tonight's game should also be a close one, look for the pitching staff to carry the Marlins again.
