Marlins Vs. Braves: Miami Looks To Reignite Its Offense

With two straight losses to the Atlanta Braves, the Miami Marlins have dropped down to a second-place tie with their series opponents. The Marlins have scored one run in two games, and they'll need some more production from their bats if they're not to get swept tonight.

They'll get to take on the struggling Mike Minor (2-4, 6.98 ERA), who is 0-3 with a 9.95 ERA in his last six starts and has the worst ERA in the majors. Mark Buehrle (5-5, 3.53) will take the mound for Miami. Buehrle's sporting an uninspiring 4.05 ERA in three career starts against Atlanta, but he's managed to win all three.

Miami has a total of seven hits in the series.

The game is scheduled to begin at 7:10 p.m. It will be televised on Fox Sports Florida.

Braves Vs. Marlins Final Score: Miami's Bats Go Cold, Go Down 2-1

The Miami Marlins were trying to rebound from a blowout 11-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night, and the Marlins certainly rebounded in the sense that the Braves were only limited to two runs. The Marlins got a nice outing from starting pitcher Josh Johnson, who went 7.2 innings, striking out nine batters.

Randall Delgado on the other hand for the Atlanta Braves also had a nice, albeit short, outing striking out seven batters in just 6.1 innings of work. The Marlins were limited to just two hits on the night and couldn't plate anymore runs after Bryan Peterson knocked in Giancarlo Stanton in the fifth inning. Miami loses their second game in a row to the Braves, 2-1.

Braves Vs. Marlins Recap: Miami Blown Out 11-0

The Atlanta Braves opened their three-game set at Marlins Park with a blowout win over the Fish. It all caved in on Anibal Sanchez, who gave up seven earned runs in 6.2 innings pitched. Chad Gaudin came on late in relief and gave up four runs in the ninth inning as the Braves extended the lead for the 11-0 win.

Dan Uggla had a huge night at the dish for the Braves, ripping two homers and knocking in five of Atlanta's 11 runs. Aside from the power bursts from Uggla, Atlanta did most of their damage with station-to-station baseball, tallying 16 hits off the Miami staff. The bottom half of the order came through with the other six RBIs, as even pitcher Tim Hudson got in on the act.

Ozzie Guillen will try to even the series up on Wednesday night with Josh Johnson on the mound. Randall Delgado will get the ball for Atlanta.
