Diamondbacks Vs. Marlins: Miami Looks To Build Winning Streak After Saturday's Dramatic Victory

Fresh off a dramatic win that snapped a six-game losing streak, the Miami Marlins (8-12) send Josh Johnson to the hill on Sunday to face the Arizona Diamondbacks (10-11), hoping to build on Saturday night's ninth inning heroics.

Johnson is just 0-2 this season with a 4.63 ERA, but in his career he is 3-1 against the Diamondbacks, striking out 28 batters in 27 innings of work.

Arizona will answer with lefty Wade Miley (2-0, 1.84 ERA) on the bump. Miley has been thrown into the Diamondbacks rotation after an injury to Daniel Hudson. After making bullpen three appearances to begin the year, Miley allowed just two hits and struck out seven in six scoreless innings against the Phillies on Monday.
