Thank God the Rangers have left town.

It doesn't get any easier for the Fish, though, as the Tampa Bay Rays come to Sun Life Stadium for a three-game set that starts tonight.

Nate Robertson takes the hill for the Fish. This is Nate's first start since his relief appearance against the Rays last Saturday in which he went 5 2/3 after Ricky fell apart. Nate allowed just one run on four hits in relief of Nolasco, and basically shut Tampa Bay down in that appearance. Hopefully can recreate that tonight.

Matt Garza has the ball for the Rays. The Marlins hit him fairly well when they faced him last week, but he was the only Rays pitcher to beat the Fish in their first three-game set of the Citrus Series.

Ichthyomancy is late for the game. And it's Craig's fault.

Best of luck!
