The Marlins are going to try this win a home game on the road thing again. And hopefully have a little more luck doing so than last night.

Chris Volstad is on the hill for the Marlins. Volstad in his last outing pitched a beauty going 7 innings allowing only 1 run on 6 hits while walking 4. Naturally the offense did score any runs to speak of but Chirs somehow avoided taking the loss, though he pitched well enough for the win. Same thing as always, if his sinker will sink and he can pound the lower part of the zone and pitch inside some, he will keep the Marlins in the game.

Jason Vargas gets the call for the Mariners. You remember Vargas, the Marlins drafted him 2004 and he pitched for the Fish before being traded. He had an outstanding start his last time out pitching a complete game shutout of the Phillies on 3 hits. The lefty throws a fastball (88 mph), cutter, curve and change. The cutter and change are his most effective pitches. It won't be a problem for Jason taking his turn at the plate, that boy can flat out hit. Or at least he did when he was a Marlin.

The Marlins starting lineup:

Boni, LF

Infante, 2B

Gaby, 1B

Ramirez, SS

Stanton, RF

Buck, C

Helms, 3B

Wise, CF

Volstad, P

The new look "a lefty is on the mound" lineup.

Ichthyomancy is pretending to be ready.

Best of Luck to You!
