Josh Willingham has shown steady power all season, and Hanley Ramirez continues to get on base. Miguel Cabrera is doing what he has throughout his young career -- hit.

 

What's plaguing the Marlins is a lack of production on a consistent basis from the rest of the lineup.

 

The Marlins take the field Sunday afternoon trying to avoid being swept by the Rockies.

 

After dropping two straight one-run contests, the Marlins are hoping for a more balanced attack.

 

The Marlins will start right-hander Sergio Mitre, while the Rockies are going with Byung-Hyun Kim.

 

Mitre was initially set to start on Friday, but he flip-flopped with Brian Moehler to allow a turf toe problem a couple of days more to heal. The right-hander is starting for the first time since last Sunday in Philadelphia, where he took a loss.

 

At home, Mitre is 0-1 with a 6.17 ERA in two starts.

 

Kim is making his first start of the season after being out with a right hamstring problem.

 

Pitching matchup

FLA: RHP Sergio Mitre (1-2, 4.56 ERA)

A pair of home runs to Phillies slugger Ryan Howard led to Mitre taking a loss in his last outing. Even in defeat, Mitre was able to log six innings while throwing a season-high 103 pitches. In 23 2/3 innings, the right-hander has struck out 18 while walking nine. He walked four at Philadelphia. In his first four starts, Mitre's shortest stint was 5 2/3 innings.

 

COL: RHP Byung-Hyun Kim, (5-12, 4.86 ERA in 2005)

Kim, making his first appearance after missing most of the month with a strained right hamstring, did his best work after moving to the starting rotation (5-9, 4.37 ERA). He struck out 11 and walked four in three injury rehab starts at Triple-A Colorado Springs (0-1, 6.23 ERA).

 

Player to watch

Garrett Atkins was a triple shy of hitting for the cycle Saturday night. The Rockies third baseman belted a two-run homer and added an RBI single, along with a double in the 8-7 win. Atkins has four home runs and 18 RBIs, while batting .363 on the season.

?Can the Marlins find a new way to lose?

 

?Ok, for real... if Wes Helms bats against Jose Mesa today Im gonna kick some puppies

 

?Still No Todd Helton, No Problem or Muy Problemo?

 

?Can Sergio avoid the homerun ball?

 

?The first 250 fans in attendance will be offered an open try-out to play CF or RF(while Herm is out)
