Open Thread and Ichthyomancy: Diamondbacks at Marlins (8/16)

New, comments

The Marlins are going for the series win tonight in the deciding game.  The Diamondbacks haven't lost a series since mid-July and it is time to end that streak, a month is long enough.

The Marlins starting pitcher is Daniel Barone.

The Diamondbacks have in mind, Liván Hernández.

Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Barone will be making his second Major League start and his JRS debut.  In his first start he was doing reasonably well right up until he gave up a three-run home run in the fifth.  Hopefully, he will have a little better command tonight and not throw as many pitches early.  In the Minors, Barone had a 3 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio, which ain't bad.

Hernández has won three of his last four starts, however, he does makes mistakes when he pitches and it will be up to Marlins offense to hit them when presented.  If they foul 'em off or just watch them go by, it could be a long night.  Hernández has a career ERA of 3.84 in JRS.

Ichthyomancy is ready for action.
