Breakout the brooms Florida! Because the Marlins are going for the sweep!

Anibal Sanchez takes the hill for the Marlins. In his last start, Anibal pitched a one hit complete game. Now, he did seem to be laboring towards the end but he did find a way to ramp it up and complete the game. The following day, Anibal assured everyone that he felt fine. While he has many great qualities as a person, telling the truth about how he feels is not one of them. We will see how the extended effort when his arm had to be tired will effect him. Historically, he pitches better at night, than the day. However, he does his best work at home. That said, I will be surprised if he goes past seven innings.

Chad Billingsley is going to try and salvage a game for the Dodgers. Billingsley has put two very good starts together in his last two attempts. Over the course of that time, he has only allowed 1 earned run in 14.1 innings while striking out 14. The absolute weird thing about Billingsley is that he does his best work on the road, during the day. That is something you don't see much of. He throws a fastball (91 mph), cutter, curve and change. So far his fastball and curve have been his most effective pitches. He lives down in the zone and gets into trouble when his pitches are up.

The lineup for the Marlins is:

I have no idea. I'm writing this at 3:00 AM and they haven't been announced yet.

Ichthyomancy really hates mid-week day games with a passion. But does love a sweep.

Best of Luck to You!
