The Miami Marlins lost their first game of the series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night, and they'll have a pretty good chance to bounce back when they send what should be their best pitcher to the mound on Tuesday. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm and you can find the game on Fox Sports Florida.
This would seem like a pretty good time for Josh Johnson to get his first win of the year. Normally I wouldn't think anything of an 0-3 record because there are a lot of other factors that are taken into a pitcher's record, but Johnson's ERA of 5.87 shows that his winless record is not a fluke. Johnson is supposed to be the ace of this staff and they can only play up to their ability if Johnson is at his best. The Pirates aren't a great offensive team, and Johnson might be able to get back on track here.
