Right-hander Tom Koehler will get the call for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night and will face Colby Lewis and the Texas Rangers.
Last Wednesday, Tom Koehler didn't pitch particularly well, but he was able to get some help from his offense and ended up picking up his fifth win of the season. He went five innings in that game and allowed three runs on six hits, including two home runs, while striking out four and walking four. Koehler now has an even 5-5 record on the season and has only allowed 60 hits in 73 innings of work.
Rangers outfielder Alex Rios has faced Koehler three times and has one single against him, while Daniel Murphy has one hit in two at-bats against him.
Colby Lewis had a rough game against the Baltimore Orioles last Thursday, but he ended up getting a no decision as the Rangers were able to come back ad win that game 8-6. Lewis gave up five runs on seven hits in five innings in that outing while striking out four and walking two. The right-hander has given up a whopping 75 hits in 53 innings this year and has a 5.77 ERA.
Rangers catcher Jeff Mathis has faced Lewis more than any of his teammates and is 2-for-5 against him with an RBI and two strikeouts. Reed Johnson is 1-for-3 against him with one strikeout.
