The Marlins are going for the series win tonight and it also has the added bonus of ending the road trip on a very high note. Don't know for sure, but I'm guessing the roof will be closed for tonight's game.

Javier Vazquez takes the hill for the Marlins. Javy will be looking to build on pitching two solid starts in-a-row. In his last outing he went six innings and only gave up three hits. Unfortunately two of them where solo home run shots. Even more unfortunately the offensive never solved Garland.

Daniel Hudson takes his turn in the rotation. In his last start Hudson kinda got rocked in Minute Maid but somehow avoided giving up a home run. He did get the win when the D-backs out slugged the Astros. Hudson will, normally, give up his fair share of hits but has done a decent job of stranding base runners. He throws a fastball (93 mph), slider and change. His slider is his best pitch.

The Marlins starting lineup:

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

If Hanley can't play on Friday the Marlins will likely place him on the DL, retroactive to his injury. The Marlins have a short bench and it is made even shorter with Hanley not available. Also, the team can't keep going with only one short stop. If Hanley is placed on the DL look for the Marlins to recall Ozzie.

Another thing to note: JJ has yet to throw a bullpen session, maybe Friday, and there is a world of difference between throwing on flat ground and throwing off a mound. Edwin seems to think that JJ may make his start on Tuesday. Let's just say, I have my doubts.

Ichthyomancy is up and running.

Best of Luck to You!
