Braves look to recapture magic from 3 game sweep of Marlins earlier in season.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves turn to Williams Perez to try and end their most recent losing streak. Perez is coming off strong outing against the Phillies limiting them to 2 hits over 6 innings of work. He's done well against the team from Philadelphia and hopes to extend his good work to a team not based in the state of Pennsylvania.

The Marlins will counter with Adam Conley who is coming off a rocky start against the Nationals. The lefty surrendered 6 runs on 7 hits in 5 innings. Conley also has allowed a 1.018 OPS against left handed batters so it is a bit odd to see Mallex left off tonight's lineup.

Braves don't have much experience as a team against Adam (20 at-bats), however here's how they have fared against him: Freeman 0-for-2, Markakis 0-for-1, Francoeur 1-for-8 (single), and d'Arnaud 0-for-1.

Here's how the Braves line up against the Marlins:
