The Marlins welcome the Diamondbacks to JRS and in the process we get to say Hi to an old friend. Tonight's starting pitchers are two of the most fun to watch apply their craft.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Dontrelle Willis.
The D-Backs have slated Byung-Hyun Kim.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Willis has recently been going deeper in his starts. If he can avoid the big inning and not throw as many pitches for balls he could easily have a good outing.
Kim's first start with his new/old club didn't go all that well. He only last 2.1 innings and gave up 4 ER. Generally lefties have a field day with Kim and righties find it much more difficult.
The Diamondbacks have the best record in the NL and are a very fun team to watch play. But that doesn't mean that the Marlins won't return the hospitality that the D-Backs showed us in Arizona. In fact, I'm counting on the Fish to return the favor.
