Miami has done exactly what they needed to do this early in the season as they sit at 18-15 and just 2.5 games off the pace in the tough NL East. They do however have to deal with these Nationals and Mets while Phillies have been the surprise team, just hanging around in the division.
Miami will send out RH Tom Koehler, who is coming off an impressive outing. Koehler pitched 7.0 innings for the first time all season while striking out 8 in the process. He’s faced Washington twice as he’s allowed 1 run in 5.0 innings of work and 2 runs in 6.1 innings of work.
