After being swept at Philadelphia, the Marlins opened their six-game homestand in position to make things a little bit difficult for Cincinnati.
Miami shortstop Jose Reyes says the team still has plenty of incentive.
"We're trying to win some games," Reyes said. "We're playing hard. We know we don't play too good as a team. We are trying to go out there and show people we still believe in what we have here, in the talent.
"We just need to take it one game at a time and try to finish strong. So we can go into Spring Training with a better feeling."
All areas of the organization are being evaluated at this point, including the front office, manager, coaches and players.
"We need to see where we're at going into the offseason, and see what we need to do to try to make this team better," Reyes said.
