Miami's Tom Koehler draws the starting assignment for the series opener at Turner Field. In three starts against the Braves this season, Koehler is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA. He will put that success to the test opposite Ervin Santana, who is enjoying a terrific second half.
8/28/2014 | Rare Hech homer not enough to pick up Alvarez
In his 117th game and 431st at-bat, Adeiny Hechavarria connected on his first home run of the season Wednesday night. Naturally, the Miami shortstop was met by the mandatory "silent treatment" in the dugout. Unfortunately for the Marlins, their offense remained silent the rest of the night.

8/26/2014 | Marlins hope Eovaldi can harness power vs. Halos
Nathan Eovaldi remains one of the hardest throwers in the game, repeatedly bringing his fastball in at 95 mph and over. What's plagued the right-hander lately has been inconsistent offspeed pitches. And he's been prone to the big inning. Eovaldi has struggled since the All-Star break, posting a 1-4 record with a 5.31 ERA in seven starts. The Angels, meanwhile will go with right-hander Matt Shoemaker, who no-hit the Red Sox for 6 2/3 innings last Thursday before Will Middlebrooks doubled.

The only other occasion they were together was at the All-Star Game at Target Field in Minnesota.
8/25/2014 | Red-hot Ozuna cleans up; McGehee down to fifth

8/24/2014 | Redmond marvels at Hechavarria's run-saving grab
When Marlins manager Mike Redmond saw the ball come off Justin Morneau's bat, all he could think was "this thing is over."

But as soon as shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria came down with the grab in no-man's land, Redmond remembered who he was dealing with.
