The Marlins (55-93) have never lost to the New York Mets when the New York native Tom Koehler has been on the mound, heading into the finale of this four-game set at Citi Field.

Koehler (3-10, 4.80 ERA) is 0-4 with a 5.89 ERA in seven starts since pitching six innings Aug. 1 to earn a 3-0 home victory over the Mets. He also was winless in his first seven 2013 starts.

His other start this year against New York (66-82) was an 8-4, 10-inning road victory June 9 in which he gave up four runs in seven innings. Koehler, who was born in the Bronx and pitched in college at nearby Stony Brook, had about 100 family members and friends at Citi Field.

Juan Lagares is 3 for 6 and Daniel Murphy 3 for 8 versus Koehler, whose 7.32 road ERA since Aug. 7 is one of baseball's worst marks.

New York will start right-hander Dillon Gee (11-10, 3.61), who owns a 2.56 ERA in 19 starts since May 30 -- actually lower than injured teammate Matt Harvey's 2.60 mark in 15 outings in that span.

Gee has faced the Marlins once this year, giving up four runs in five innings to get credit for a 7-6 road win May 1.

These teams have each scored seven runs in this series, with the Mets winning two of the first three.
