Koehler stepped up and stopped the bleeding, beating the Nationals in his last outing to snap Miami's eight-game losing streak. In seven shutout innings, he allowed one hit. His 112 pitches were one shy of a personal high.

Fernandez comes off a dominating performance with a no-decision vs. Washington, striking out 10 and allowing three unearned runs in seven innings. Lifetime on the road, he is 3-7 (4.00). Against the Braves, he is 1-1, 2.08.
Wood will be looking to rebound from the tough-luck loss he took while notching a season-high eight innings on Thursday in Philadelphia. He has completed at least seven innings in three of his first four starts.
Wednesday, 4/23 12:10 PM
Nathan Eovaldi, RHP (1-1, 3.55 ERA/2.25 FIP/3.31 xFIP)vs Aaron Harang, RHP (3-1, 0.70 ERA/2.77 FIP/4.46 xFIP)

Harang was lifted from Friday's start against the Mets after throwing 121 pitches over seven hitless innings. The 35-year-old veteran has carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning during two of his first four starts of this season.
