The Miami Marlins are taking their recent success westward, as the Fish face off against the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first time in the regular season. This will be a three-game set starting tonight with a little Late Night With the Fish! Tom Koehler kicks things off for Miami versus Chase Anderson.
|PROJ ERA||FIP||ERA||MARLINS||Diamondbacks||ERA||FIP||PROJ ERA|
I don't know much about Chase Anderson, who wasn't much of a prospect before his 48 1/3 innings this season. I know that Tom Koehler wasn't much of a prospect either, but did you know that quietly, he has put up two very nice starts recently? He put up a 3.52 FIP with a 24.6 percent strikeout rate in June, so something must be clicking for him. Let's see if it lasts in the desert heat of Chase Field.
|MIAMI MARLINS||ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS|
|C. Yelich - LF||Ender Inciarte - CF|
|Donovan Solano - 2B||David Peralta - LF|
|G. Stanton - RF||P. Goldschmidt - 1B|
|Casey McGehee - 3B||Miguel Montero - C|
|Garrett Jones - 1B||Aaron Hill - 2B|
|Marcell Ozuna - CF||Martin Prado - 3B|
|J. Saltalamacchia - C||Gerardo Parra - RF|
|A. Hechavarria - SS||Didi Gregorius - SS|
|Tom Koehler - RHP||Chase Anderson - RHP|
More of the same for Miami's lineup tonight. Didi Gregorius starts at short for Arizona, and Miami would be wise to keep an eye on him.
- I won't be here tonight because I will be at work all evening. Enjoy the game without me fellas!
- I have updated Ichthyomancy point totals to this point! We need more players everyone, just so we can get attendance points to count and more competition! Jigokusabre, your defending champion, has a strong lead over gatorfan4life, but it's not insurmountable just yet! Here's your full leaderboard!
Bold Prediction: Marlins def. D'backs 6-3
