Breakout the brooms Florida because the Marlins are going for the sweep. And even more than that, the Fish are going for five wins in-a-row. While they haven't gained much, if any, ground during the streak, if they can keep it going they will eventually.

There is a good bit of news to report but unfortunately we will have to catchup on it Monday. Sorry about that.

Sanchez has been working on his mechanics in bullpen sessions since his last start. Mainly, he is working on spotting his fast ball. Hopefully, the extra work will have positive results. This will be Anibal's first start this season against the Nationals and also his first one in the day.

Balester made his major debut against the Marlins on July 1 and pitched well giving up only 1 run in 5 innings. The Nationals have won his last 3 starts. While Balester tends to go at least 5 innings and most of the time 6, he does walk a few and has been known to give up the long ball.

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