The Marlins finally got a win last night and now, it is time to take the next step: win a series. And they can do that very thing with another win tonight. Also this is the final game in the 21 games in 20 days epoch.

The Marlins are going with a bullpen day and Brian Sanches is the first pitcher up. If the Chief can go 4 innings, I will be impressed. But don't expect much more than that and 4 is asking a lot. He is simply not stretched out to go any deeper than that. After Sanches, it's anyone guess to who pitches next. The last time the Marlins went with starter by committee the Marlins won.

Joel Pineiro gets the ball for the Angels. Pineiro last start was a pretty decent one going 6.1 innings allowing 2 runs on 6 hits while striking out 4. He has pitched better on the road this season than at home, like much better. His home ERA is 5.01 while sporting a 2.81 ERA on the road. Pineiro throws a fastball (88 mph), slider, curve and change. He is a sinker ball pitcher by trade but his slider and change have been his most effective weapons this season.

The Marlins starting lineup:

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

Looks a lot like last night's lineup, and why not?

Ichthyomancy wants to remember what is like to win a series.

Best of Luck to You!
