Today at 2:10 ET, the Marlins will “host” the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Wisconsin. Miami is 2-3 versus the Brewers this season, and this will be the last of six times the two clubs face off.

Milwaukee defeated the Marlins, 10-2 on Friday, and the Marlins came back with a 7-4 victory last night, so today’s game can see Miami salvage a late-season series despite having won just three of their last 19 matchups.

Yesterday, the Marlins relied on a four-run first inning and a two-run homer by Derek Dietrich (12) for the victory. Marcell Ozuna, Justin Bour, and Dee Gordon all joined Dietrich with two hits on the day. Adam Conley (7-7, 5.20) struck out six batters in 5 23 serviceable innings, and Drew Steckenrider added three more strikeouts in a rookie season to remember. Steckenrider dropped his ERA to just 2.08 in the contest.

Dillon Peters (0-1, 2.50) will take the hill for the Marlins in today’s matchup. He’ll be looking for his first major league win in his fourth start with the parent club. He has struck out 18 in as many innings, holding opponents to a .234 batting average and 1.33 WHIP. He will face off opposite right-hander Brandon Woodruff (1-2, 3.14), a fellow rookie who has racked up a 1.19 WHIP and a .224 opponent’s batting average.
