Braves Vs. Marlins Preview: Time, TV, And More

Kris Medlen has been a very pleasant second-half surprise for the Atlanta Braves since moving from the bullpen to the rotation.

But then again, perhaps the Braves were expecting great things, considering they have won 20 consecutive starts by Medlen, dating back to 2010.

The Braves will go for 21 when they visit the Miami Marlins on Wednesday. Medlen is 7-0 as a starter this year, and has been automatic.

The Braves hope his hot streak continues, since a win would bring them one game closer to clinching a wild-card spot in the National League. Their magic number for a clinching a playoff spot is seven.

The Marlins will look to delay the Braves' playoff quest, sending Josh Johnson to the mound. Johnson has been solid this season, since missing most of last year with a shoulder injury.

Wednesday's game starts at 7:10 ET, and will air on SPSO.
