The Marlins are going to try that winning the series thing again today.

Ricky Nolasco is on the hill for the Fish. In Ricky's last he pitched a complete game while throwing 115 pitches, it will be interesting to see how pitches today. If Ricky is on, he is almost unhittable. If not, the boys with the bats need to take up the slack.

Derek Lowe is still a sinker ball pitcher, but not quite as devastating as he was a year or two ago. Now that doesn't mean he can't dominate a game, he can. But just that time is catching up with him and he is now hittable. Hopefully he will leave the sinker up in the zone.

Ichthyomancy is looking to split the road trip.

Best of Luck to You!
