Luzardo (5-9) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks over four innings Sunday, striking out five and taking a loss against the Rays.

Luzardo struggled out of the gate, allowing two runs in the first inning on a pair of sacrifice flies. He then retired eight straight batters and worked out of a jam in the fourth inning without taking any more damage. Luzardo has pitched fewer than six innings in each of his last five starts but slightly lowered his season ERA to 6.90. He's lined up to face the Phillies at home next weekend assuming the Marlins don't shut him down.
