Florida is coming off a sweep of the Nationals and has now won four straight to move its home record back above .500.
The Marlins send Ricky Nolasco to the hill who has been throwing very well of late. If not for two starts against the Mets over his last eight outings, he has been throwing spectacular. In those other six games, he is 5-1 with a 1.96 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. He has been solid at home all season, posting a 3.90 ERA and he has allowed three runs or less in six of his eight home starts.
The other two starts were of course against the Mets. Milwaukee is also coming off a sweep but that was at home at the road has not been kind to the Brewers. Milwaukee is just 23-39 away from home and it has dropped 16 of its last 24 away from Miller Park. The big issue has been pitching as the Brewers have a road ERA of 5.16 on the road which is 15th in the National League and 26th in all of baseball.
One pitcher who is part of those road struggles is David Bush who is 3-5 with a 5.78 ERA and in 13 road outings, the Brewers are just 4-9. Those struggles continue on Friday.
