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.

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.

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.

Notes

- 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
