For the second series in a row the NL East Leading Marlins are going for the sweep. (Those are fun words to type -- give a try at home in your spare time. You will be glad you did.)
Now onto the game.
The Marlins starting pitcher is Mark Hendrickson.
The Nationals have Odalis Perez on the slate.
Game time is 7:10 p.m.
Hendrickson is getting a little better in each game. In his last outing he only gave up 1 ER in 5.1 innings. In his career he yet to beat the Nationals, but no never mind, we're breaking all those streaks this series.
Perez is lefty -- so look for Cody to start in center. Perez is having some problems with a blister on his pitching hand and in turn hasn't been able to control his fast ball. The key for the Marlins is to stay patient and make him throw strikes.
Note to Mbaamin: I haven't forgotten you and hopefully I will get home in time to explain the viewing problem tonight.
Ichthyomancy is looking for the first sweep of the season. So be sure to get your picks in and Good Luck!
