Marlins go with right-handed hitting lineup

MIAMI — With the Braves throwing lefty Mike Minor, the Marlins stocked up with right-handed hitters in their series finale at Marlins Park.

Justin Ruggiano made his first start in center field, and Donovan Solano started for the second time in left field. Jose Reyes is a switch-hitter, who will bat from the right side.

Logan Morrison was the only left-handed hitting regular in the lineup. The other lefty bat is pitcher Mark Buehrle.

Reyes had his 15-game hitting streak snapped on Wednesday.

Miami is hitting .232 against lefties, compared to .250 against right-handers. The Marlins have scored just one run in the first two games of the series.
