The Marlins last won a series on June 22-24, taking two of three against the Braves at home. They have a chance to claim a series victory on Sunday, in the rubber game with the Mets at Pro Player Stadium.


Left-hander Dontrelle Willis seeks to also give the Marlins back-to-back wins for the first time since they knocked off the Braves in the first two games of that June series.


Now in his second season in the bigs, Willis has excelled when facing the Mets. The left-hander is 4-0 with an 0.64 ERA against New York, including a win this season in which he gave up one run in seven innings. As a rookie in 2003, Willis tossed a one-hit, complete-game shutout to defeat the Mets.


In 44 starts in his career, Willis is 20-11. The Marlins are 28-16 in his starts.


Having snapped a stretch of three straight rough outings, Willis is coming off a solid performance in a no-decision against the Pirates on July 6.


Mets left-hander Al Leiter, who starred on the Marlins' 1997 World Series title team, is 22-8 in his career at Pro Player Stadium.

I have PAX, maybe they'll air it up here today. That'd be nice.


Only WPXM (Miami), WPXP (Palm Beach), WEVU (Fort Myers), COX Cable (Gainesville), and COMCAST (Panama City) will air this game. That is the Marlins Television Network.


Mets TV will have the game on WPIX. WB11 in New York, Channel 234 on Dish Network Nationwide.
