Happy fourth of July to everyone celebrating such, and to our friends across the international dateline Happy fifth of July. The Marlins are once again in sweep avoidance mode.
Ricky Nolasco takes the hill for the Marlins. Ricky is slowly starting to find his stride. In his last two outings his strikeout totals increased and he went seven innings in each. Nolasco is still giving up way too many long balls but once he is on, those will disappear. Ricky has always had some problems when facing the Braves, but that doesn't mean he will today.
Tim Hudson gets the ball for the Braves. Hudson has been lights out when pitching at home this season. His home ERA is just a measly 1.55 with a BAA of .200. However, if you take what he is giving he can be scored upon. His walk rate is up this season and his strikeout rate is down. So if the Marlins can discipline themselves to swing at only the pitches in the zone, they have the chance of doing some damage.
Ichthyomancy is here for this unusual Sunday start time.
Best of Luck to You!
