|2008 - Scott Olsen||8-10||31||31||0||0||0||0||190.2||184||100||89||28||67||107||4.20||1.32|
|2008 - Shairon Martis||0-3||3||3||0||0||0||0||13.0||11||10||9||4||10||15||6.23||1.62|
The Marlins have been eliminated from the NL East division race, but still, barely, remain alive in the wild card hunt. The elimination number for the Fish is 2 with 6 games to go. In other words, the Marlins need to run the table and hope for some help along the way.
The Fish are in D.C. to play three against the Nationals.
Olsen has won his last two starts in-a-row and his teammates didn't find a way to screw it up. Amazing. In his last start he went 7 innings giving up 1 run on 3 hits and only walking 1. If Ollie can keep the ball in the park, hold down the walks and his teammates actually support him three times in-a-row, he should do fine.
Martis being the young guy that he is, he sometimes as control issues. He last faced the Marlins on September 12 and pitched well. He went 5 innings allowing only 2 runs on 2 hits, walking 3 while striking out 9. Or to say it another way, he was effectively wild in that outing.
Ichthyomancy is ready for a game that is at a time when humans can watch. Best of Luck to You!
