The Marlins are going for seven wins in-a-row.

Nolasco is well, Nolasco. If he is spotting the fast ball and the breaking stuff is doing what it is suppose to do, he will be real nasty. Ricky made his first start of the season against the Astros coming off an elbow injury, he wasn't his best work but he won the start anyway.

Backe will be making his first start since September 2. He missed his previous start due to elbow soreness. Backe had Tommy John surgery in 2006 so the Astros were probably being careful with him. Backe is from Galveston so you know the hurricane was extra hard on him. The previous sentence has nothing to do with the game, just letting you know.

Ichthyomancy be liking the winning streak. Best of Luck to You!
