The Miami Marlins last won back-to-back games on July 28-29, only the second time they have done that since the break. They have a chance to do it a third time on Wednesday night against the New York Mets with a fourth-inning outburst.
On the mound for Miami is Nate Eovaldi, making only his third start since being acquired from the Dodger in the Hanley Ramirez deal. His last outing was a rough one as he surrendered six runs on eight hits in two innings to the Braves. In two starts versus the Mets, Eovaldi is 0-1 with a 5.59 ERA.
New York counters with Chris Young, who enters the game following his best start of the season last week. He held the Giants to one run over seven innings, allowing just four hits in the process.
Jose Reyes has a chance to extend his hitting streak to 26 games on the field he used to call home.
The game starts at 7:10 p.m. and can be seen on Fox Sports Florida.
