The Marlins will try to even the series tonight and start another win-streak, and hopefully one not as modest as the last.

Brad Hand gets the call for the Marlins. Naturally this will be his first start against tonight's opponent. Control is always paramount for the young Mr. Hand. He will need to limit the number of walks and try and keep the ball in the park. If he can do that, he might keep the Marlins in the game.

Derek Holland is on the mound for the Rangers. Holland's last time out he went 6 innings giving up 12 hit while allowing 7 runs but only 3 were earned. The lefty throws a fastball (94 mph), slider, curve and change. I guess his change is his most effective pitch. He has been known to miss the strike zone on occasion.

The Marlins starting lineup:

Boni, CF

Infante, 2B

Gaby, 1B

Ramirez, SS

LoMo, LF

Stanton, DH

Buck, C

Helms, 3B

Petersen, RF

Interesting lefty on the mound lineup.

Ichthyomancy is not even close to ready.

Best of Luck to You!
