The Florida Marlins are hoping to keep the Atlanta Braves from clinching a playoff spot when the teams square off on Tuesday.
The Miami Marlins open a three-game series against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, looking to spoil a possible postseason party at Turner Field. With a Braves win, Atlanta would clinch a National League wild card berth.
Miami enters the series having lost four straight and seven of its last 10. The Marlins are limping toward the season's finish line and appear to be destined for a last-place finish in the NL East. Miami is 66-87 this season, 22 games behind the Braves.
The Marlins send Nathan Eovaldi to the hill for Tuesday's game. Eovaldi is 4-12 with a 4.59 ERA in 2012. He hasn't won since Aug. 18.
Kris Medlen will start and aim to continue his incredible run for Atlanta. Medlen is 9-1 with a 1.51 ERA this season and hasn't lost since moving into the rotation July 31.
Tuesday night's first pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by Fox Sports Florida. For a complete list of Marlins radio affiliates, click here.
