Dodgers Vs. Marlins: Struggling Miami Starter Ricky Nolasco Looks To Earn Victory On Saturday

The scuffling Miami Marlins (51-62) and struggling starter Ricky Nolasco will host the Los Angeles Dodgers (61-52) and former teammate Hanley Ramirez on Saturday night at Marlins Park. Ramirez was three for five on Friday night in a 5-2 Los Angeles victory, the Dodgers' fourth straight win on the road.

Nolasco (8-11, 4.95 ERA) will head to the hill for Ozzie Guillen's club on Saturday. He has lost five straight starts, compiling a 7.16 ERA in that span. In four career starts against the Dodgers, the right-hander is 0-2 with a 7.33 ERA.

Newly acquired Joe Blanton (8-9, 4.52 ERA) will be on the mound for Los Angeles. In his Dodgers debut on Sunday, Blanton allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work, but earned a no-decision in a 7-6 L.A. win.
