That last try at winning the series thing, was a dismal failure. But the good news is that the Fish get to try again.

Nolasco will be making his first start since throwing an one hit, complete game, shutout. When Ricky last faced the Diamondbacks he went 8 innings, allowing only one run on six hits, striking out 9. Sometimes, a pitcher coming off a complete game is a bit off his game in the next start. But seeing how Nolasco pitched free and easy at the end of his last game. He could be fine.

Davis had a nice start against the Padres his last time out. He went 6 innings giving up 7 hits and 2 runs while striking out 6. However, Davis does his best work at night. His daytime ERA is 7.80 as opposed to his nighttime ERA of 4.17. Also, he tends to pitch better on the road than at home. Davis is lefty and has yet to face the Marlins this season.

Word around the campfire is that Treanor may get the start at catcher today.

Ichthyomancy is ready for the usual Sunday day game. Best of Luck to You!
