Woo-Hoo! We are coming off a win and a very solid one at that. Tonight the Marlins will attempt to win two in a row for the
third fourth time this year.
The Marlins starting pitcher is fightin' Scott Olsen. Kerry Wood is the scheduled starter for the Cubs.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Wood will possibly be making his second start since shoulder surgery. The reason I say possibly is that he wasn't able to go through his normal light bullpen session due to soreness yesterday.
Given how well Baker treats his young arms, I fully expect him to start. Wood didn't have a good outing in his first appearance this season giving up 4 runs in 5 innings with 3 HR. The one thing he did do that concerns me is he struck out 6. Given our propensity to strikeout this may be a problem.
