Last night, the Miami Marlins fell short on a rally. Today against the Pittsburgh Pirates, they will hope they will not even need to rally with their best pitcher on the mound.
Jose Fernandez will take the mound for the Fish, but he will face fellow 2011 draftee Gerrit Cole, another top young pitcher in a battle of potential future aces.

The Marlins send out their best pitcher against another top-ranked pitching prospect in baseball heading into this season, Fernandez and Cole figures to be a matchup for years to come, so it will be fun to see how this first battle goes down.
