The Marlins are still on the road, and tonight finds the fighting Fish in San Diego for a three-game series. The Padres are in first place in the West and have the best record in the NL, and as goes with the territory of having the best record, they are hot right now.

Chris Volstad takes the hill for the Marlins. Volstad pitched reasonably well in his first start since returning to the big club. Normally, it is imperative for Volstad to keep everything down and induce ground balls. When he does, he has success. However, tonight he will be pitching in a fly ball-friendly park. So if he should leave a couple up, it will be the job of the outfield to run them down.

Wade LeBlanc is the pitcher of choice for the Padres. LeBlanc is a soft-tossing lefty. Oh, great, another one of those. He is a fast ball (87 mph), cutter, curve, change pitcher. The change is his most effective pitch, but the cutter ain't shabby. Like most pitchers, he does his best work at home. It is doubtful he will go much more than six innings.

Ichthyomancy is ready for another round of Midnight Baseball.

Best of Luck to You!
