The Marlins will looking to even the series. The Fish have lost four straight to the Braves, it is time to end that streak.

Anibal Sanchez takes the mound for the Marlins. Anibal has logged a win in eight starts, which is the longest winless stretch of his career. Can anyone say: no run support? I know I can. Anibal's last start wasn't exactly a gem, but it wasn't bad either. He went 7 innings striking out 8 but allowed 4 runs. Half of the runs came in the 7th inning on a home run. He hasn't had a lot of luck against the Braves in the past.

Tim Hudson takes his turn in the rotation for the Braves. Hudson has been very solid for over a month now. Since June 5, he has allowed 3 runs or less in every start. In his last one he went 7 innings giving up 5 hits, striking out 8 but did allow 3 runs to cross the plate. Hudson throws every pitch known to man. He throws a fastball (90 mph), slider, cutter, curve, change and a splitter. He uses the fastball and slider the most, which is understandable since they are his most effective pitches.

The Marlins starting lineup:

Boni, 3B

Infante, 2B

Gaby, 1B

Ramirez, SS

LoMo, LF

Stanton, RF

Cameron, CF

Buck, C

Anibal, P


The same as last night's. Maybe tonight they will actually score a run.


Ichthyomancy is sorta ready.


Best of Luck to You!
