The Marlins will be going for win number four in-a-row and the series win tonight. The last time and the only time this season the Marlins won four in-a-row was on April 19-22.
Ricky Nolasco takes the hill for the Marlins. Ricky has been very sharp recently. In his last outing he went 7 innings and only allowed 1 run, but of course he took the loss since the offense couldn't be bothered to even score a run in the contest. If Ricky is on tonight, the Astros are going to have a long night at the plate.
Brett Myers is on the mound for the Astros. Myers really hasn't pitched badly recently, even though in his last start in 6 innings of work the Pirates scored 5 runs with 4 of them earned. He is dominating anyone but he is keeping his club in the game. Myers throws a fastball (88 mph), slider, curve and change. HIs slider and curve have been his most effective pitches.
The Marlins starting lineup:
Not that crazy about Cameron starting in center. I hope center doesn't turn into a platoon position since Cameron has no upside and Petersen potentially does. However, everyone on the team needs to play some.
Ichthyomancy is ready for action.
Best of Luck to You!
