The Atlanta Braves will attempt to cultivate their winning disposition and will look to strive for their fifth consecutive victory as they get ready to resume hostilities with the Miami Marlins. The two NL East division rivals are scheduled to compete in the finale of a four-game series set to be broadcasted on the FOX Sports network Wednesday night at 7:35 p.m. ET and live from Sun Trust Park in Atlanta, GA.

The Braves, who have won all four series thus far this year against the Marlins, enter this affair as a -230 home favorites, according to Bovada Sportsbook, with the total sitting on 8½ runs. RH Jose Urena (3-12, 4.74 ERA) will attempt to snap a two-game losing streak as he takes his turn for the Marlins while RH Kevin Gausman (6-9, 4.27 ERA) will look to collect back-to-back victories as he gets the call in the finale for the Braves.

Urena has struggled mightily in his last five starts in which he allowed four or more runs in four of those contests. The 26-year old allowed 4 runs across 8 hits with a walk and 3 strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings in a 6-2 loss against the Mets back on Friday. The Dominican Republic native, who has lost all 3 of his starts while maintaining a 5.82 ERA against Atlanta this year, is 2-5 with a 5.52 ERA in 10-career starts against the Braves.

Gausman has been solid since being acquired by the Braves from Baltimore at the trade deadline on July 31. The 27-year old threw one of his better games of the season in his last trip to the mound. The LSU product allowed a run over six hits with no walks and eight strikeouts in eight innings in a 10-1 victory against the Brewers back on Friday. The Colorado native lost his lone career start against the Marlins back on June 15.

Pitching Matchup:
Marlins: RH Jose Urena (3-12, 4.74 ERA)
