The Marlins are looking to keep the snowball rolling.

Volstad takes the mound for the Fish. If Volstad can keep that sinker of his down and keep the ball in the park then he will do well. However, if he starts leaving the ball up in the zone, it is souvenir time in the cheap seats.

Oswalt is an All-World pitcher but he hasn't started in two weeks due to lower back problems. The good news about Oswalt is that he throws hard and is always around the plate. Sometimes that helps.

I think I'm blacked out for the game but I will try a local sports bar just to be sure.

Ichthyomancy is set on go.

Best of Luck to You!
