FishStripers welcome to lunch with the Marlins. The Marlins still be at home after the game and the Padres are only flying to Philadelphia afterwards. Who put this schedule together?

Anyways, the Marlins are in sweep avoidance mode. Which may be a little tricky with the team being 10-15 during day games and 22-30 at home. Not to mention the Marlins have lost seven straight games at home versus the Padres. This has to stop, all of it.

Javier Vazquez is on the hill for the Marlins. Vazquez has pitched well in his last five starts, going seven innings in three of them and six in the another. He has only allowed 5 earned runs in his last 33.1 innings. But the bad news is he hasn't pitch all that well at home and in day games. Hopefully he will keep up the good trend while avoiding the bad trend.

Dustin Moseley gets the ball for the Padres. Moseley has been roughed up a little in his last three starts, giving up 13 runs in his last 18 innings. But part of that was due to no help by the defense and the Padres have lost 6 games in-a-row when he is on the mound. But don't read too much into that, he is a much better pitcher than those stats indicate. He throws a fastball (89 mph), cutter, curve and change. His cutter and curve are his most effective pitches and he throws them a lot.

There is no way I will get the Marlins lineup listed.

Ichthyomancy really hates day games.

Best of Luck to You!
