The Marlins will be hosting the Mets for a three-game series. The Mets have a little different look since Monday, they have added David Wright, Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran to the lineup. I bet the Mets fans are happy.

Chris Volstad takes the hill for the Marlins. With Volstad this season it has been feast or famine and his last outing was a barren attempt. Chris only went 3 innings allowing 4 runs and everyone, including the bat boy, I think, got a hit against him. One thing we know about Volstad is that his last start indicates nothing about how well he will do tonight. If the sinker is sinking and the off-speed is working, he will do well.

Mike Pelfrey is on the mound for the Mets. Pelfrey has pitched pretty decently in his last three starts. In his most recent one he went only 5 innings and gave up 4 runs, but most of the runs were due to a three-run blast. Pelfrey has been giving up the long-ball a lot this season. He throws a fastball (92 mph), slider, curve and splitter. Spotting his fastball has been his most effective pitch.

The Marlins starting lineup:

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

Very happy to see that Petersen is going to get a second start in center.

Ichthyomancy is ready for the weekend.

Best of Luck to You!
