The Marlins are going to try that winning the second game in the series thing again.

Nolasco will once again take the hill for the Marlins. His last start was good, but unfortunately for Ricky, the bats didn't come alive until he was out of the game. Nolasco has the ability to shut any team down, but it all depends on his control. If he is spotting his fastball and the curve is working, the Rockies will be guessing all night long.

De :Los Santos, you remember him, he pitched out of the bullpen for the Marlins in 2005. During that year he probably threw the equivalent of 200 innings warming up in the bullpen. He rarely came in but Jack had him up and pitching, almost every game. This will be his fourth major league start. De Los Santos is a lefty, so it is conceivable that Jacobs won't start tonight. He is a fastball, slider, change pitcher.

Tonight, Dan Uggla will receive an award:

Dan Uggla will be honored on Saturday by the MLB Players Association with the "Heart and Hustle Award." One player from each of the 30 MLB teams was recognized with the award, which honors an active player who demonstrates a passion for baseball and best embodies the values, spirit and tradition of the game.

If that wasn't enough, and it should be, it is another Super Saturday and the Bangles will be performing after the game.

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