The D-backs start their 10-game East Coast roadie against the struggling Miami Marlins

After losing two of three games to the Philadelphia Phillies, the Arizona Diamondbacks now take their first trip to the East Coast, although it will be in the nicer part of that side of the country as they get to play the new look Miami Marlins for their one trip to Florida for the season.

The D-backs have lost seven of their last 10 and now sit at 9-10 on the year and are trying to weather the injury storm they are going through. However, the Marlins have lost their last five games and sit in the basement of the NL East.

Which team can get out of its funk?

Look at the probable pitching matchups for the weekend (Note that the D-backs have not yet announced Sunday's and Monday's starters):

Friday, 4:10 PM: Joe Saunders (1-1, 1.29) vs, Carlos Zambrano (0-1, 2.84)

Saturday, 4:10 PM: Ian Kennedy (3-0, 3.86) vs. Anibal Sanchez (1-0, 2.79)

Sunday, 10:10AM: Unnanounced vs. Josh Johnson (0-2, 4.63)

Monday, 9:40 AM: Unnanounced vs. Mark Buerhle (1-3, 2.63)
