The Marlins are looking to even up the series tonight.

Chris Volstad is on the hill for the Marlins. If there is anyone on the Marlins team that is happy May is finally it has to be Volstad. Not much went right for right-hander. But may be June brings new promises, we hope. If Volstad can actually get his sinker to sink and keep his pitches and in the park, he should keep the Marlins in the game.

Yovani Gallardo takes the mound for the Brewers. Gallardo is flat-out on fire. In his last start he went eight innings allowing only four hits and didn't give up a run. He throws a fastball (92 mph), slider, curve and rarely shows a change. His fastball, slider and curve are all plus pitches. However, he normally pitches better a home and he has been known to walk more than his fair share of batters.

The Marlins starting lineup:

Coghlan, CF

Boni, SS

LoMo, LF

Gaby, 1B

Dobbs, 3B

Stanton, RF

Buck, C

Infante, 2B

Volstad, P


Note: Hanley had to cut short his pool therapy today, which doesn't look good for him avoiding the DL.


Ichthyomancy is ready to even this thing up.


Best of Luck to You!
