The Marlins are looking to take the lead in the series and tonight's game poses an interesting match up.

Nolasco has the stuff to shut down the Cardinals with ease, assuming it is all working properly. Ricky's only problems of late has been giving up home runs. If he can spot his fast ball and breaking balls are breaking and he can keep the ball in the yard, he should be fine.

Looper, you remember him, he has 2003 World Series ring, is having a similar problem to Nolasco. The only runs that are being scored off him, recently, have come via the long ball. While I don't expect this game to turn into a home run derby, it is sort of interesting, or at least to me.

Ichthyomancy is ready to do it again. Best of Luck to You!
