Partly cloudy. Winds blowing from left to right field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 80.
The Miami Marlins are going for the (gasp!) series win tonight versus the Washington Nationals. It will be Ricky Nolasco versus Ross Detwiler.

Ricky Nolasco has been anomalous in 2013, but for once, it's in the opposite direction, with his real performance outstripping his peripherals. Meanwhile, Ross Detwiler has stranded all the runners, but his underlying peripherals appear to be business-as-usual. The Fish are hoping it's not business-as-usual for Detwiler against the Marlins, as he holds a career 2.38 ERA and 18 strikeouts in 22 innings against the Fish.

The Marlins wisened up and are batting Ruggiano fourth against the lefty Detwiler. However, they still have not smartened up and are batting Greg Dobbs, a lefty hitter who is a well-known righty-only specialist, fifth. Win some, lose some.
Austin Kearns returns to the lineup following his hospitalization with an irregular heartbeat. We welcome back Kearns and hope he has an awesome game tonight.
Bold Prediction: Nationals def. Marlins 5-2
