Jurrjens has great statistics, but his ERA is lower than you might expect with them. Karma has paid him back with horrendous run support. The Dutchman is 0-5 in his last 7 starts yet has just a 3.40 ERA in that span.

If I've done my math correctly, Marquis will break Franklin Morales' scoreless inning streak if he gets to the fourth inning tonight unscathed.

Seth Smith and Ryan Church appear in the outfield for the first time this series
