The Dodgers and Will Smith are going to Miami to take on the Marlins for three games.  This is the start of a six-game road trip for LA.

Fresh off a series victory against the feisty Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers will head east to take on the Miami Marlins to kick off a six-game road trip.  This is a bit of a trap series for the Dodgers as they face off against the Atlanta Braves after the next three games.  The Braves are seen as the second-best team in the National League, so the Dodgers need to take care of the Marlins before they look ahead to the Braves.

The Dodgers and Marlins played not too long ago in Los Angeles from July 19th to the 21st.  Although the blue swept that series, it was not an easy sweep as they took the series opener 2-1 and the second game was 6-6 until the Dodgers broke it open in the eighth inning and scored four runs.  LA will send out their current 2-4 starters this series in Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, and Dustin May.

Here are three things to watch for against the Marlins.
