It's time to startup the so called second half of the season and the Marlins welcome the Phillies to town. The Phillies are only 1.5 games ahead of the Marlins in the standings and our favorite team has the chance to change that for the better.
Nolasco wasn't as sharp as usual in his last start, but he did what all good pitchers do, battle through it and keep his team in contention. Actually, in the late innings he was able to spot his fast ball with a little more regularity, when he used it. Ricky has done well against the Phillies this year, facing them twice and only allowing two ER in the process. When Nolasco is on, he can shut any team down.
Moyer has never lost to the Marlins in his career, and how I hate him. He is a soft tossing lefty who has unbelievable command of his pitches when facing the Fish. His perfect record can't last forever. Hopefully, tonight, the behind the plate umpire will have a tight strike zone and will not allow all that wide crap six inches off the plate to be strikes.
Ichthyomancy is ready for some action. Best of Luck to You!
