The Marlins are in Philadelphia for a three game set against the Phillies. The Marlins have played better in Citizens Bank Park than at home when matched up against the Phillies this year. Of course this wouldn't be a difficult task since the Fish have yet to beat the Phillies when playing in South Florida this season.

Nolasco takes the hill. This will be Ricky's first start in Philadelphia this season. A place where he normally gets good results, 3-1 with a 3.20 ERA. Nolasco has what it takes to shut the Phillies, or anyone else for that matter, down.

Blanton has also been very good of late. While he doesn't throw hard (89 mph fast ball) he mixes his pitches well. He has been known to give up a home run or two.

Ichthyomancy is more than ready for the weekend.

Best of Luck to You!
