The Marlins are coming off of an impressive 9-2 win over the Phillies on Wednesday afternoon.

The Marlins are sending out Ricky Nolasco to try to start a winning streak, but he has not been all that great over the past month. Nolasco did win his last start against the Dodgers, but prior to that he has lost five starts.
