Get out the brooms, because the Miami Marlins are going for the sweep.

Boy that feels good to say.

The Marlins and New York Mets will tangle in the last game of the season, and the Marlins will aim for the sweep so that they can finish with 70 wins on the year. Tom Koehler will start the game, though there's no guarantee he will go long in today's contest. Jeremy Hefner goes for the Mets.

Pitching Matchup

Proj Win% Proj ERA FIP ERA Marlins Mets ERA FIP Proj ERA Proj Win%
--- --- 4.56 5.40 Koehler Hefner 5.32 3.80 --- ---

Koehler is getting the start, and he is regularly a starter in the minors, but he may not be going the entire way as he is currently adjusted to a bullpen role. Do not be surprised to see Chad Gaudin in the fourth or fifth inning.

Notes

- This is the final game of the 2012 season, and the Marlins are looking to avoid their first sub-70 win season since the 1999 campaign. I sure hope they get it, because getting less than 70 wins here would be very disappointing.

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. Mets 5-4
