Yesterday night, the Miami Marlins had to sit through some terrible weather while fearing the inevitable insertion of Heath Bell into the ninth inning to save a game. He did not save a game, and Chad Gaudin failed to hold a tie as the Marlins lost in extras to the Washington Nationals 7-6. This afternoon, the Marlins will look to turn disappointment into at least a feeling of calm as they send Ricky Nolasco to the mound for the series finale versus the Washington Nationals.Pitching Matchup

Ricky Nolasco dominated Washington Nationals hitters in his last outing against them, throwing a complete game shutout with six strikeouts. In fact, his last two starts have looked like the player better known as "Good Ricky," the elusive former top starter with tantalizing stuff that had bouts of problems with runners on base (the infamous "Bad Ricky" side). The Fish are hoping for three Good Ricky starts in a row today.
Edwin Jackson is exactly who we thought he was and exactly who he has been for four straight seasons. Man, wouldn't it be nice to have him on the team?

- The prophecy of this week continues, as I stuck around for yesterday's game and, despite the early lead, we ended up losing. I may hedge my bets and check out early today in an attempt to rally the team, but I will be around for at least a little while.
Bold Prediction: Nationals def. Marlins 5-2
