Snapping their three-game slide on Tuesday night, the Marlins head into Wednesday with a chance to grab the advantage in their four-game set with the Dodgers at Dolphin Stadium.
Now 2-3 on the homestand, the Marlins are going with their ace, Dontrelle Willis, in hopes of getting back to .500.

Willis will go after win No. 6 as he draws the start against Brett Tomko.

The D-Train is 2-1 with a 6.85 ERA in four home starts. The left-hander comes off a no-decision in a game won by the Marlins over San Diego on May 4. He struck out five and walked four, while allowing four earned runs in six innings.

Last season, Willis suffered a 4-2 loss to the Dodgers, despite striking out nine.

Tomko is 0-3 with a 4.40 ERA on the season.

Traditionally, the veteran has faired nicely against Florida. For his career, he is 6-1 with a 3.00 ERA in 12 games and nine starts.

With Tuesday's win, the Marlins snapped a four-game slide to the Dodgers at Dolphin Stadium dating back to August of 2005.

Pitching matchup
FLA: LHP Dontrelle Willis (5-1, 5.44)
Willis held the Padres hitless through four innings, and he was outdueling Greg Maddux, 3-0, going into the sixth inning, when he allowed a bases-loaded triple to Mike Cameron to lose the lead. Willis was most frustrated by the four walks he issued. He has said since Spring Training that his main focus this season is to cut down on walks. On the up side, he ended up allowing just four hits through six innings, and struck out five.

LAD: RHP Brett Tomko (0-3, 4.40)
The bottom three of the Atlanta lineup went 0-for-7 against Tomko in his last start, but the rest of the order went 5-for-12 with six walks as he struggled with his command and lady luck. The four runs scored on a pair of doubles, one by Brian McCann on a pitch well out of the strike zone and the other on a ball that glanced off the glove of center fielder Juan Pierre. Nonetheless, four of the walks factored in the Braves' two rallies.

Player to watch
Miguel Olivo has been getting banged up, but the gutsy catcher belted a home run Tuesday after having the tip of his left middle finger bruised on a foul ball in the first inning. Olivo had the finger X-rayed after the game, and the results came back negative.
