Marlins Vs. Mets Game Preview: Ricky Nolasco Tries To Stop 3-Game Skid

The Miami Marlins will try to avoid the sweep on Sunday at Citi Field after falling to the Mets, 4-3, on Saturday. The Fish have lost three straight and will turn to Ricky Nolasco to be the stopper during their final road trip of the season. Nolasco is 12-12 with a 4.42 ERA this season. He's been hit by the Mets in two starts this season but he's been impressive in the month of September -- posting a 1.71 ERA in three starts.

New York manager Terry Collins will counter with veteran Chris Young. The 6'10 righty is 4-8 with a 4.37 ERA this season and he's had mixed results against the Marlins in his two starts against them. Young was crushed for seven runs 4.1 innings in August but shut down the Miami lineup in early September in his second outing.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET and Fox Sports Florida will have the broadcast.
