Breakout the brooms Florida, because the Marlins are going for the sweep. And along with it, sole possession of third place in the NL East.

Clay Hensley takes the mound for the Marlins. Hensley, in his last start, he went 7 innings allowing just 5 hits while giving up 3 runs. All the runs came in the 7th when Danny went deep for a 3-run blast. This will be Hensley fourth start of season and it will his third against the Mets. In first two starts against he went 10 combined and allowed a total of 2 runs.

Dillon Gee gets the call for the Mets. In his last outing, Gee went 6.2 innings, giving up only 4 hits and 3 runs, 2 of which were earned. This will be only his second start against the Marlins. In the first he got a ND. The rookie throws a fastball (90 mph), slider, cutter, curve and change. He is mainly a fastball, change pitcher and both pitches are good ones.

The Marlins starting lineup:

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

As expected, Hanley gets the night off. In fact, he won't be at the game. The Marlins sent him back to Miami for a MRI.

Ichthyomancy is practicing counting.

Best of Luck to You!
