The Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals will square off again, and I guarantee that only one team is happy about that after the 10-3 beating the Marlins took last night. But tonight is a different ballgame, and there will be two different pitchers on the mound in Alex Sanabia and Dan Haren.

Pitching Matchup

Alex Sanabia has not been a good pitcher in 2013. This fact has been covered earlier today, but it bears repeating. Sanabia should get this start and perhaps one more before one of either Nathan Eovaldi or Henderson Alvarez returns to the pitching staff, so this is one of Sanabia's last chances to prove his mettle in the majors.

Dan Haren has pitched nine innings, struck out ten batters, and walked none. He also gave up four home runs and has a 9.00 ERA. Strange, terrible season for him so far.


No lineup as of this writing. Assistance Fish Stripers!


- No word yet on Giancarlo Stanton or Austin Kearns, though Stanton will attempt to take batting practice today before the game.

- I am unsure as to when I will be able to make it, as I do not know when my work will end. Hopefully I can catch tonight's game, as Haren may be a prime target for the Marlins' bats to maybe wake up and do something.

Bold Prediction: Nationals def. Marlins 6-3
