Tonight the Marlins will try to get this spoiler thing down for more than just the first game of the series.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Daniel Barone.
The Cubs have Jason Marquis on the lineup card.
Game time is 7:05 p.m.
Barone has been very good in long relief for most of the time he has been with the big club. His last start wasn't all that bad after he quit giving up home runs in the first inning. He probably won't go past five innings.
Marquis is a sinker ball pitcher and we all know how that goes. If he has it working, he can be tough. If not, it's party time. He pitched against the Marlins earlier this year and gave up 5 runs in 5 innings. Marquis has been known to give up the long ball when the sinker ain't sinking.
Ichthyomancy has another win on its mind and besides, it is time to get Barone his first major league win as a starter.
Here's today's Ichthyomancy pick table:
|Marlins: 10+ H
|Marlins: 2+ PH
|Marlins: R > 6, Cubs: R < 4
|Marlins: R+H > Cubs R+H
|Barone IP > Marquis IP, Gardner: save
|Barone: IP > 5
|Marlins: 3+ HR
|Ramirez: 2 H
|Marquis 5+ R, IP < 5
Best of Luck to Everyone!
