The Marlins are going for the series win. Today's game features once again two pitchers who are squaring off for the second time in-a-row. There is a 60%in today's forecast.

Anibal Sanchez takes the hill for the Marlins. Anibal was simply great in his last outing against the Nationals. Throwing 7 innings of shutout 2 hit ball and hopefully he will repeat that performance again today. Anibal normally pitches very well at Nationals Park. His career ERA there is 1.09 in 4 starts.

Livan Hernandez takes his turn in the rotation. Hernandez had his worse start of the year last time he faced the Marlins. Going only 5 innings while giving up 8 hits and allowing 6 runs. In that game Livan couldn't get his sinker to sink.

The Marlins lineup is as follows:

Coghlan, CF

Infante, 2B

Ramirez, SS

Gaby, 1B

LoMo, LF

Stanton, RF

Dobbs, 3B

Buck, C

Anibal, P

Apparently if you are able to do a fancy slide, you move up in the order. And why not?

Don't forget to make your picks for the President's Race. Your choices are Abe, George, Thomas or Teddy.

Ichthyomancy is barely ready for the stupid Saturday day game. Ichthy hates day games.

Best of Luck to You!
