The Marlins are going for win number two in the four-game set.

Volstad's first win in the majors came against Colorado in two-innings of relief at Coors Field. He is a sinker ball pitcher and does require some help from his friends, who, up to this point, have been happy to pitch in.

Jimenez throws hard. Which isn't bad news, but it may take the Fish one time through the order to get the timing down. You would have to go back to June to find the last time he didn't have a quality start. Jimenez is a sinker, curve, fast ball pitcher and much like all the Rockies pitchers, he is on a roll.

Ichthyomancy is pretending like it is ready. Best of Luck to You!
