In the first two games of the series with the Cubs, the Marlins had good starting pitching performances but unfortunately neither translated into a win. So tonight the Fish look to avoid the sweep.
The starting pitcher for the Marlins will be Scott Olsen. The Cubs, in his Major League debut, will counter with Angel Guzman.
Game is at 2:20 p.m.
Guzman is up from the Triple-A club in Iowa for which he has made three starts this season. For a normal Major League club about to face him this would pose a dilemma but our Fightin' Fish aren't exactly a normal club. Two of Angel's starts this season have been against the Isotopes and therefore some our players have seen him before.
I will let Matt Cepicky handle the scouting report:
Okay, this guy is hittable. If it is not too much of an inconvenience would y'all mind proving it.
Game time temperature is expected to be in the upper 50's with a 10 mph wind blowing in from left field. I guess this is what passes for a balmy day in April in the City of Chicago.
