The Miami Marlins send Mark Buehrle to the mound Monday night in the first of four road contests against the Arizona Diamondbacks at 9:40 p.m. at Chase Field in Phoenix.

The Marlins split four games with the Colorado Rockies in the first four games of their eight-game road trip, squeaking out two 6-5 victories in the middle two games of the series. In their two losses in Denver, the Marlins lost by a combined three runs.

Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton had three homers and four RBIs in four games, which ran his streak of games with a homer at Coors Field to seven before it was snapped Sunday.

The Diamondbacks send Joe Saunders to the mound to meet the Marlins. Saunders has gone six or more innings in each of his last 10 starts, but is just 3-6 in those ten appearances. The Diamondbacks are coming off of a three-game sweep over the Houston Astros over the weekend.
