The Marlins are once again in sweep avoidance mode. Just like every Marlins fan on the planet, I'm getting really tired of sweep avoidance mode. But dwelling on the negative never gets you anywhere, so it let's look at it this way: winning today will get us back to .500 and there are only seven other teams in the league that can say they are there or better.
Andrew Miller is on the mound for the Marlins. Miller's last two starts should not be discussed in polite conversation since doing so will elicit improper words to be spoken. BGA is a better pitcher at home and his best start of the season was in a day game. So there is hope.
Jeff Samardzija takes the hill for the Cubs. Geez, his last name is a pain. I'd be impressed if he learned how to spell it before he graduated high school. Anyways, he will be making his second audition start of the season. His first one went well going 5.2 innings, allowing 0 runs on 6 hits and walking 4. He is basically a fastball, slider, splitter pitcher but will mix in a curve or a cutter on occasion. His most effective pitch is his slider, but normally it is at best, an average slider.
Word of warning to everyone still playing Ichthyomancy: tomorrow's game is a day game. Just letting you know.
Ichthyomancy wants a win.
Best of Luck to You!
