It seems like the Miami Marlins are having slightly more trouble than the Tampa Bay Rays in the week following the devastation of Hurricane Irma.
The upcoming three-game series between the Marlins and Brewers was originally scheduled to take place in Miami from September 13-15, but due to the city still dealing with the effects of the calamity, the series has been relocated to Miller Park in Milwaukee.
Subsequently, the Marlins' seven-game road streak will now stretch to ten games.

The location change was requested on behalf of Major League Baseball and the Marlins, so now the quick turnaround means the Brewers will have to make some deadline adjustments to how they normally do things when they host ball games.
Notably, the brief lead time means that staffing available at concessions, guest services, and other logistics will restrict the amount of fans the stadium will be able to accommodate for the three games.
For Friday, only Field Level tickets will be available for purchase, but that will expand for the Saturday and Sunday games, as the available capacity will increase to approximately 23,000.
The Marlins are currently 2-13 over the course of their last 15 games, and an extended road stretch certainly isn't going to help that record. On the other hand, Cubs and Cardinals fans are up in arms about their close competitor getting an extra swath of division games.
For now, the Marlins have just got to continue to fight through, much like their city is going to.
