Will Cliff Lee be able to finally win a game this season? He will attempt it again on Friday against the Miami Marlins.
Lee (0-4, 3.72 ERA) has been knocked around lately, giving up five earned runs in his last two starts against the Tampa Bay Rays and the Toronto Blue Jays, but a start against the struggling Marlins might just be what he needs to get that elusive win. Miami has lost 17 of their last 21 games and have barely averaged three runs a game in that stretch.
The Marlins will send out Josh Johnson(4-5, 3.96 ERA) to try and stop their near month long slide. Even with his poor win-loss record, you can't blame it on Johnson. He has given up three runs or less in his last nine starts, including his last start against the Blue Jays where he gave up 1 run and 2 hits in 7 innings of work.
