Marlins Vs. Indians: Miami Looks To Win Their First Interleague Series Of Year

Miami and starter starter Josh Johnson (1-3, 5.36) look to win on Sunday and take their first interleague series of the season against the Cleveland Indians (23-17). The Marlins (21-19) won Friday night's game 3-2, but were stymied in a 2-0 loss on Saturday at Cleveland's Progressive Field. Despite the loss, Miami is an impressive 13-5 in May.

Johnson (1-3, 5.36 ERA) held the Pirates to two runs in seven innings on Tuesday, earning his first victory since April 19, 2011. In 13 career interleague starts, the right-hander is 6-2 with a 3.38 ERA.

Veteran Derek Lowe (6-1, 2.05 ERA) will take the mound for Cleveland. In his past five starts, the soon-to-be 39 year old is 4-0 with a 1.30 ERA, and he is coming off a dominant complete game, six-hit shutout over the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday.
