Interleague Preview from The Sports Network



Sunday, July 27 (All times Eastern)

Miami Marlins (50-53) at Houston Astros (42-62), 2:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Miami - Jacob Turner (3-6, 6.03) Houston - Collin McHugh (4-8, 3.28)

(SportsNetwork.com) - Jacob Turner will try to state his case to remain in the Miami Marlins' rotation on Sunday, as they attempt to complete a three-game sweep of the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.

Turner picked up his first victory since June 5 on Tuesday in Atlanta, as he held the Braves to a pair of runs and four hits over five innings to run his record to 3-6 to go along with a 6.03 ERA.

"We talked before the game about him stepping up and getting another opportunity to go into the rotation and he did exactly that," Miami manager Mike Redmond said.

He had been 2-4 with a 6.38 ERA in nine starts before being moved to the bullpen last month

Houston, meanwhile, will turn to righty Collin McHugh, who returns from the disabled list following a fingernail issue that popped up in his most recent start back on July 6.

McHugh has been a pleasant surprise for Houston this season, compiling a 3.28 earned run average along with a 4-8 record in 14 starts since being promoted from Oklahoma City in late April.

However, he is 0-5 with a 4.45 ERA over his last six starts.

Miami continued to roll on Saturday, as Giancarlo Stanton drove in three runs to help the Marlins to a 7-3 win. Jordany Valdespin hit a two-run homer and Christian Yelich finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored for the Marlins, who have won three straight and six of their last seven.

Tom Koehler (7-7) earned the win after giving up three runs on nine hits with two strikeouts over five innings. The bullpen combined for four scoreless innings of relief.

"I walked that tightrope the whole day ... the bullpen did a great job," Koehler said.

Jose Altuve had three hits and a run scored and Jason Castro supplied a two- run homer for Houston, which lost its fourth straight game.

"We had some opportunities and were not able to get the big hit," said Astros manager Bo Porter. "That was the difference in the ball game."

Starter Jarred Cosart (9-7) was tagged with the loss after giving up five runs on seven hits and four walks across 5 2/3 frames.

This is the first series between the teams since 2012, when Houston was still a member of the National League.
