Andrew Cashner will glove up for his fifth start since joining the Marlins. In 16.1 innings with the Fish, Cashner has come up smelling like something other than roses, posting an 0-2 record with a 6.61 ERA, a 1.714 WHIP, and 12 strikeouts in 16.1 innings.
Both starting pitchers hail from Texas and were born in 1986,and have comparable career peripherals. Bailey boasts a career mark of 60-52 with a 4.19 ERA over 171 starts, with a 1.312 WHIP, while Cashner is 28-42 with a 3.67 ERA and a 1.296 WHIP over 194 games (101 starts).
Bailey is recently returned from an extended stint on the DL, and is making just his sixth start since 2014. He struck out 11 Brewers in six innings in his last outing, a 7-4 Reds win on August 12th.
Paired with J.T. Realmuto, hopefully the Cash-Money battery will finally bring the Marlins some luck.

Tonight's lineup for the Marlins is a carbon copy of last nights, with the obvious exception of Cashner for Urena. The Reds sub in Brandon Phillips for Ivan De Jesus at second, and shuffle the fourth, fifth and sixth spots, but otherwise remain unchanged.
