The Marlins are in sweep avoidance mode.

Ricky Nolasco takes the hill for the Marlins. In Ricky's last outing he went 5.2, giving up only 3 hits, walking 3 but that turned into 2 runs. Ricky was on and for once the club scored some runs for his 7th win of the season. He really should have more than that. While he has been better on the road this season, he really is a creature of the night. His day game ERA is 5.21.

Tommy Hanson gets the call for the Braves. Hanson, in his last start, went 6 innings giving up 7 hits, striking out 6 and allowing 3 runs. His command has been a little iffy of late and hopefully he won't get it together for today's game. He throws a fastball (91 mph), slider, curve and change. The slider and curve are easily his most effective pitches.

The Marlins starting lineup:

Boni, LF

Infante, 2B

Dobbs, 3B

Ramirez, SS

Gaby, 1B

Stantion, RF

Cameron, CF

Hayes, C

Nolasco, P


Well, that is a bit different. Maybe it is a winning combination. It is good to see Hayes getting a start again.


Ichthyomancy is on go.


Best of Luck to You!
