|2010 - Anibal Sanchez||9-7||22||22||1||1||0||0||135.1||135||61||50||5||50||104||3.33||1.37|

The Marlins are in sweep avoidance mode. While the Marlins haven't put themselves in this position very often on the road recently, it is not an unfamiliar place to be when the team is playing at the GAP.
Anibal Sanchez takes the hill for the Marlins. Anibal, strangely, has done some of his best work on the road recently. Also he is one of the Marlins best during the day starters. Hopefully today won't be any different. Sanchez has been pretty efficient at stopping losing streaks.
Homer Bailey is the starter of choice for the Reds. Bailey is taking Johnny Cueto's spot in the rotation. Cueto is serving a seven-game suspension to teach him your can't kick people with your spikes when in a brawl. Fortunately, Dusty Baker will return from his suspension and take the helm of the Reds. The Marlins sure didn't do anything against the club when Chris Speier was in charge. Bailey hasn't started a game in the majors since May 23.
I will get the points caught up once I get home, I promise.
Ichthyomancy really wants a win.
Best of Luck to You!
