The Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves square off late Sunday night at Fort Bragg on ESPN.
The Miami Marlins could use a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Marlins have allowed 22 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in five straight games. The Miami Marlins have an ERA of 4.09 and have lost six of their last eight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Martin Prado leads Miami with 96 hits, Marcell Ozuna has 47 RBI and Giancarlo Stanton has 15 home runs. Adam Conley gets the nod, and he’s 4-5 with a 3.90 ERA and 85 strikeouts this season. Conley is 2-0 with a 3.54 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.

The Atlanta Braves also need a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Braves have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Atlanta Braves offense has heated up this series, and they’ve won nine of their last 11 games when scoring more than three runs. Freddie Freeman leads Atlanta with 88 hits, Nick Markakis has 42 RBI and Tyler Flowers has six home runs. Matt Wisler takes the hill, and he’s 3-7 with a 4.14 ERA and 70 strikeouts this season. Wisler is 0-0 with a 7.11 ERA and three strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series and 0-4 in Conleys last 4 road starts. The Braves are 4-10 in their last 14 during game 4 of a series and 4-11 in Wislers last 15 starts. The Marlins are 3-7 in the last 10 meetings.
The Braves continue to have little success with Wisler on the hill, and Conley has really heated up for the Marlins this season, as he's looking more and more like a legit No. 2 starter. I like Miami to win this historic game in front of the military crowd.
