The Marlins are in Atlanta to play a three-game set with the Braves. The Marlins will be trying to win their sixth game in-a-row and in the past, the sixth win has been very elusive. But should they get it, it will have the Fish at .500 again.

Clay Hensley takes the hill for the Marlins. In Hensley last outing he went 5 innings allowing 4 hits, 2 runs but did walk 4. Hopefully he will get that walk thing under control. Expect Hensley to limited in the number of pitches again, but the number is slightly increasing so, if he doesn't walk a bunch of batters, he may be able to go 6 innings.

Brandon Beachy is on the mound for the Braves. Beachy's last start went okay, he completed 6 innings giving up 5 hits, 1 earned run but did walk 4. In his last 10.2 innings he has walked 9 batters. Beachy throws a fastball (92 mph), slider, curve and change. Spotting his fastball is his most effective pitch.

The Marlins starting lineup:

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

Gaby is back. Other than that, it remains the same.

Ichthyomancy is so ready for the weekend.

Best of Luck to You!
