The Marlins are in New York to makeup the rain out on May 17. After this one is over, the Fish head home for a six-game home stand.

Clay Hensley gets the call for the Marlins. Hensley, coming off the DL for a shoulder sprain, will be making his first start since July 24, 2008. I would go into detail about how well that went, but you don't want to know. Also, it really has nothing to do with tonight's outing. It is doubtful that he will be able to go deep into tonight's contest. If he can give the Marlins a strong five or possibly six innings and keep them in the game, then he has done his job.

The Mets are sending Chris Capuano to the hill. Capuano has pitched reasonably well as a starter this season. In his last outing he went 6 innings allowing 2 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks. The lefty throws a fastball (88 mph), slider, cutter and change. His fastball and slider are his most effective pitches.

The Marlins starting lineup:

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

The new lefty lineup.

Ichthyomancy is happy for a night game. Stupid Chicago.

Best of Luck to You!
