The Marlins are going for the series win today.

Volstad will bring his sinker and curve ball along with his 91 mph fast ball to the game. Volstad has won his last two starts. While he may not go much more than six innings, since he tends to walk a few and strangely is his giving up more home runs than one would think, he has been solid most of the time.

Maine tends to work the corners with his fast ball and slider, if the Marlins can be patient and wait on the the pitch to actually cross the plate before they swing they should make some good contact. Maine will walk a hitter who refuses to go fishing, of course that is assuming they can recognize it soon enough.

I will catch up on Ichthyomancy once I get back to where I reside. In the meantime, I have a date with my nieces. So if you happen to the watch the Rangers vs A's game and see some older guy surrounded by two beautiful young women, that is probably me.

Ichthyomancy is ready to win the series.

Best of Luck to You!
