The Marlins are looking to secure the series win and break the hearts of every Mets fan around the globe. It won't be easy because the Mets are rushing up their best pitcher on short rest.

Nolasco has been a machine this season. He takes the ball and he does his magic. As with every Nolasco start, if he can spot his fast ball and the breaking pitches are working, he is good to go.

Santana is going on three-days rest since the Mets are possibly facing playoff elimination. Santana's out pitch is a changeup and it may be the best one in the game. His has never pitched on short rest during the regular season in his career. He did it once in the playoffs in 2004 and was quite successful. If the Marlins hitters do get lucky and identify the fast ball, they have been known to hammer it.

If both pitchers are on, this could turn into a battle of the bullpens.

Josh Willingham, last night, tied a Marlins team record for hitting a home run in 4 consecutive games. Hopefully, by the end of today's game, he will hold the record exclusively.

Ichthyomancy is late, stupid day games, but is ready for action. Best of Luck to You!
