The Marlins are out West for a nine-game road trip and it all starts tonight against the San Francisco Giants. One nice thing about being in the land of Rice-A-Roni is we get to see our old friend, Cody Ross.

Ricky Nolasco takes the hill for the Marlins. Ricky had a bit of an off night his last time out but he rarely has two of those in-a-row. Ricky has always pitched well against the Giants and especially in San Francisco. If he is on, like we all hope for him to be, he will shut down the Giants. If not, well... may need to score a bunch of runs. But former is the more likely.

Matt Cain toes the rubber for the Giants. Cain is once again putting together another very solid year. He has gone at least seven innings in each of his last three starts and hasn't given up more than three runs in any of the games. He throws a fastball (91 mph), slider, curve and change. And he throws all of them well, but the curve can get a bit iffy at times. He is a fly ball pitcher so look for the Giants outfielders to get a work out tonight.

The Marlins lineup is as follows:

Coghlan, CF

Ramirez, SS

LoMo, LF

Gaby, 1B

Dobbs, 3B

Stanton, RF

Buck, C

Infante, 2B

Nolasco, P

No surprises there.

Ichthyomancy is ready for Midnight Baseball! Woo Hoo!

Best of Luck to You!
