The Marlins find themselves, once again, in sweep avoidance mode, which is rare for a road series.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Byung-Hyun Kim.
The Diamondbacks are going with Micah Owings.
Game time is 9:40 p.m.
Kim returns to the place where he started his Major League career. Kim was outstanding in his last start going seven innings and allowing only one run. Expect the D-Backs to load up on lefties since right-handed hitters have had very little luck against him this season. Treanor should be the catcher this evening.
Owings is a rookie and has never faced the Marlins and that scares me the most. He has had some control problems in the past and hasn't won a game in over a month. Lefties have been killing the guy with an average against him of .300.
Ichthyomancy is ready for more midnight baseball. Hopefully the bats will wake up and end this dreadful series on a good note.
