The NL East Leading Marlins are going for the series win tonight, and on TV at that.

If you are unfamiliar with games on this new fangled contraption called TV, it is the box in your home that has a screen and receives signals of some kind and shows pictures. (I still can't believe that in South Florida all 162 games aren't broadcast on television.)

Anyway, on to the game.

Hendrickson is on a roll winning four starts in-a-row. Last year he pitched in relief at Miller Park and didn't too badly giving up only one hit in three innings. Unfortunately that hit was a home run. While there isn't much data to go on, he has been stellar on the road this season posting a road ERA of 2.40.

Villanueva does his best work at home. However, righties tend to cause the most pain in his outings this season and the Marlins have plenty of those. The Marlins faced him last season when he was a reliever and let's just say they didn't do so well. But that was 2007 and this is 2008 and the Marlins are streak busting this year.

Ichthyomancy is ready to go. Don't forget to make your Sausage Race picks, the website updating guy will eventually regain his senses and update the site. In the meantime, if Rich and Tommy give the results of the race please feel free to share it with the rest of us.
