The Marlins turn to Tom Koehler (6-8, 4.68 ERA) to counter the Phillies’ Jerad Eickhoff (6-10, 3.76) in tonight’s series finale at the Bank.

Koehler has made it through five innings just once in his past four starts, while Eickhoff has only one start all season of less than five frames. Remove an eight-run outburst in Colorado and Eickhoff has a 2.34 ERA over his last nine starts.

The Marlins have taken two of the first three from the Phils to make it to second place in the National League East and the second NL Wild Card spot. Tuesday’s win put them nine over .500 for the first time since 2011. Since getting off to a 5-11 start, Miami is 46-32 for a .590 winning percentage — only the Cubs and Giants have a higher one.
