Beckett vs. Tomko

Tonight's game will take place while I'm somewhere in Manhattan catching a Broadway show. Guess who's in charge (of me) tonight? Just kidding. Actually, I think this may have been my suggestion. But I'll have to get filled in on the game later.

(edit by craig) The Favorite Marlin Contest has the weekend off.

Notes from last night's game: The Marlins, still without injured first baseman Carlos Delgado and catcher Paul Lo Duca, have totaled eight hits in the past two games, each a defeat. Both players may rejoin the lineup this weekend.

Conine argued when he struck out in the ninth and was ejected by plate umpire Mike Everitt. Manager Jack McKeon protested Conine's ejection. "He said a word," McKeon said. "I said (to the umpire), `Gee, that's common today.' And then all the fans hollered the same thing. I said, `See?"' (Fan support, you gotta love it.) AP via Sportsline
