The Miami Marlins appear to be on the rebound as they have won four in a row, including this past weekend's sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies. But now they go to play a team they have not performed well against at all in the Milwaukee Brewers. The Marlins have lost eight games in a row against Milwaukee.
Carlos Zambrano (4-6, 3.72) will start for the Marlins on Monday. Zambrano has lost three games in a row dating back to June 9. His last start on June 26, Zambrano went six and two-thirds innings, and allowed five runs on seven hits along with five walks and five strikeouts.
The Brewers will counter with ace Zack Greinke. Greinke, who was left off the NL All Star team despite a record of 9-2 and an ERA of 2.82, is coming off a six inning performance against the Cincinnati Reds on June 27. In that game, he allowed two runs on five hits. Since joining the Brewers, Greinke has not lost a game at Miller Park, going 16-0 all time.
The Marlins hope to get a boost from Giancarlo Stanton, who hit his fifth home run in his last 10 games on Sunday against Philadelphia.
The game is scheduled for an 8:10 p.m. first pitch from Miller Park. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports Florida. Radio coverage will be provided by WAXY 790 AM and WAQI 710 AM.
