Brian Sanches closing in on mark

Brian Sanches is going for a stadium record.

That he hasn't allowed a run in 21 1/3 innings at Land Shark Stadium doesn't have much, if anything, to do with the venue.

Brian Sanches has pitched well everywhere.

No reliever in Marlins history has put together a longer single-season scoreless streak at home. The only starters that have done it are Dontrelle Willis, who had a franchise-best 31-inning run in 2003 and added a 23-inning stretch two seasons later, and A.J. Burnett, who tossed 26 scoreless in 2005.

He has the reliever record and is now going for the all-time one.  If he does set it, and we all hope he does, he could get it, assuming everything works perfectly (yeah, like that is going to happen) by the end of August or early September.  After that the Marlins start running out of home games.
