The Marlins once again find themselves in sweep avoidance mode. The Fish have lost the Citrus Series, but the sweep can be avoided.

Hendrickson wasn't bad in his outing against the A's going 6.1 innings and allowing 4 runs. Sure, that isn't anything to write home about but it was an improvement. Hendrickson has made three day starts this season and has posted a 8.44 ERA in those starts. Baseball players, like most everyone else, are creatures of habit and midweek day games normally don't fit into their routines.

Garza, when he made his start earlier in the season against the Marlins, did quite well. Allowing on 1 run on 3 hits, in 7 innings. The good news is he normally has his problems pitching on the road. His away ERA for the season is 6.25.

Yes, this is a midweek day game, however, that idea you had about choosing 500 as your attendance pick in Ichthyomancy would be a really bad idea. For you see: this is Camp Day. And there should be young campers all over the place in the stadium.

This year the Marlins are hosting two Camp Days, instead of the usual one. So I don't know exactly what that will mean for the attendance figure. But back when there was only one, it meant the attendance would be in the 20,000+ range. Just letting you know.

Ichthyomancy really hates midweek day games, even if it is Camp Day. But Best of Luck to You!
