Get out the broom breakers, because the Miami Marlins are looking to bust up a sweep.

The Fish will tackle the Chicago White Sox for the final time at U.S. Cellular Field, this time in an attempt to avoid yet another three-game sweep. Alex Sanabia will be the man charged with avoiding the sweep in a series that has gone to extra innings each night. Perhaps he should also avoid spitting on baseballs.

Look, Alex Sanabia is not very good, and it isn't helpful that he's facing a guy named Dylan Axelrod. How can Axelrod not be a fireballing heat-thrower? That's a name built for destruction.

Oh, you say he's a 89 mph soft-tossing righty? Still probably beats our offense ! #MJIJ


Lineup information has yet to be released, but do not be surprised if you see the typical left-handed culprits of Chris Coghlan, Juan Pierre, and Greg Dobbs in the lineup, with Pierre unfortunately being at the top of the roster.


- I should be in around 2 PM EST and stick around until 4 PM EST. Let's enjoy the game together!

Bold Prediction: Marlins def. White Sox 4-3
