On Monday night, Tom Koehler will attempt to win his seventh game of the year when he and the Miami Marlins face Atlanta Braves right-hander Julio Teheran.
Tom Koehler pitched 6.1 innings against the New York Mets on the road in his last start and ended up with a no decision for his efforts. He allowed three runs on two hit sin that outing while walking four batters and striking out four.
