The Marlins have made their way to the Big Apple to play two against the Mets.

Josh Johnson takes the hill for the Marlins. JJ has had only one decision in his last four starts and that one was a loss in St. Louis. Now, of course, he pitched better than that but the Marlins failed to put runs on the board early in those games. Citi/Tax Payer Field can't exactly be his favorite place to play since he has a career 4.70 ERA there. But all that said, JJ is a beast and the Mets hitters will more than likely have their hands full tonight.

Mike Pelfrey gets the nod for the Mets. Pelfrey is beginning to find his grove, but unfortunately for him, is starting to give up the long ball. He is a fastball (91 mph), slider, curve, splitter type of pitcher. With his splitter being his most effective pitch. Pelfrey easily does his best work at home this season. His Citi/Tax Payer Field ERA is 2.25.

The Marlins lineup is as follows:

Coghlan, CF
Ramirez, SS
LoMo, LF
Gaby, 1B
Dobbs, 3B
Stanton, RF
Buck, C
Infante, 2B
JJ, P

Apparently, Edwin felt creative tonight. Moving LoMo up is a good thing and maybe the change of scenery for Hanley will prove beneficial.

Ichthyomancy still hates Mondays.

Best of Luck to You!
