The Marlins will be going for the series win today.

Volstad is one of those rare day game pitchers we don't see around these parts very often. In other words, he is better in day games than in night games. His daytime ERA is 1.29 as opposed to his nighttime ERA of 4.01. Volstad pitched against the Cubs on July 26 going 6 innings giving up 2 ER on 6 hits.

Dempster has been on fire of late, big surprise. He has not given up more than 2 ER in each of his last five starts. He hasn't given up a home run in his last seven starts. Strangely, Dempster isn't as good during the day. His daytime ERA is 3.43 as opposed to his 2.60 ERA at night.

Ichthyomancy is ready for a series win. Best of Luck to You!
