Marlins Vs. Brewers: Miami Looks To Split Series On Thursday

With a win in extra innings on Wednesday, the Marlins snapped a 10-game losing streak to the Brewers and inched a game closer to .500 following a rough stretch in June. Now Miami will look for a winning streak of their own against Milwaukee when they try to win back to back games to split the series with Mark Buehrle looking for his third consecutive victory.

Buehrle has earned a decision in each of his last nine starts, but prior to his back to back wins to end June, he had a losing streak of four consecutive games. The streak dropped his record to 5-8, but with a third straight victory on Thursday he can salvage an even record once again.

To do so he'll have to try and slow an offense that has scored 25 combined runs in three games against the Marlins so far. He'll also have to out-pitch Michael Fiers who is coming off an impressive win against the Diamondbacks whom he held scoreless in six innings and allowed just two hits.

The first pitch on Thursday will be thrown at 2:10 p.m. at Miller Park and will be televised of Fox Sports Florida and Fox Sports Wisconsin.
