Marlins-Astros Thursday lineups

For Houston left-hander Wandy Rodriguez on Thursday, the Marlins have stacked up a mostly right-handed hitting lineup. Chris Coghlan and pitcher Josh Johnson are the only two left-handed hitters. Emilio Bonifacio is a switch-hitter.

Hanley Ramirez looks to extend his hitting streak to 15 games, which would be a career high. Ramirez has hit safely in 14 straight, while Jorge Cantu is riding a 10-game streak.

Florida, of course, has a string of 15 straight games with at least 10 hits.
