Marlins Vs. Brewers: Miami Seeking Holiday Rebound

The Miami Marlins will try to get rid of the sour taste left over from Tuesday's 10th inning loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, a loss that voided an incredible comeback from a seven-run deficit. Miami dropped the first two games of the current series with Milwaukee, but can still salvage a split with wins on Wednesday and Thursday.

Right-hander Josh Johnson gets the call for Miami, and he gives them a fine chance of pulling out the win. In five outings against the Brewers, Johnson is 3-0 with a 3.06 ERA. Johnson has been pitching well lately, with a 1.87 ERA in his last five outings. However, he has a 2-2 record in those five starts thanks to poor run support from his teammates.

Miami managed to score 12 runs in Tuesday's disappointing loss, and they did so without Giancarlo Stanton and Hanley Ramirez who were nursing sore knees. It is unclear whether or not either player will be available on Wednesday.

The game starts at 4:10 p.m. Eastern. Fans can see the game on Fox Sports Florida.
