The Marlins are looking to gain some momentum back after getting walloped 9-1 in Atlanta last night. Miami has given up 39 runs in five games this week, and will thrown Adam Conley (4-5) into the ring to try and slow down opposing offenses.
Conley had a rough outing in his last go-around versus the Tigers. He gave up five earned runs and three walks in a loss, though he did strikeout a season high nine batters in just 4.1 innings of work. Conley pitched a gem in his last start versus the Braves on June 22nd, allowing four hits in eight shutout innings of a 3-0 win and had a solid month of June overall. In his six starts, he posted a respectable 3.53 ERA and fanned 37 batters in 35.2 innings.
Opposing Conley on the mound will be Braves youngster Matt Wisler (3-7), who significantly struggled in June. He had a 6.59 ERA and let seven balls leave the park. He went six innings versus the Indians last Tuesday, striking out a season high nine, but was given a no-decision in the start.
First pitch from Fort Bragg, North Carolina is set for 8:05 p.m.
