The Miami Marlins and Cincinnati Reds will go at it in the first game of a three-game set. The Marlins will send out Ricky Nolasco, thus skipping the injured Alex Sanabia for a start. The Reds counter with Homer Bailey, who had a fantastic eight-strikeout start in his last outing versus the Fish.

- I will be at this game tonight! My friend and I will attempt to sneak closer towards the actual front row of the section without entering the home plate seats (unless they just let us). If you're watching, you have a remote chance of seeing us!

- I will attempt to be live posting from the game on the game thread tonight, as I will bring my iPad with me.
