Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Marlins at Nationals (5/11)

The Marlins are off on a 10 game road trip and will open up against the Nationals tonight.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Scott Olsen.

The Nats will send Shawn Hill to the mound to of dirt in the middle of the field.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Olsen has a career record of 2-1 against Washington, along with a 3.90 ERA.  For the Marlins to be successful tonight, Olsen needs to be on his game.

Hill has never beaten the Marlins in his young career.  But don't let that fool you, he is very good and normally doesn't allow many runs, no matter who is the opponent.

A trivia note: on this day, 11 years ago, Al Leiter threw the first no-hitter in Marlins history.

Ichthyomancy is ready for the taking.
