Miami Marlins vs. Pittsburgh Pirates: Game 111 Thread and Ichthyomancy

The Miami Marlins will visit the Pittsburgh Pirates in a three-game set. Tonight's game will match up Henderson Alvarez and Jeff Locke.

The Miami Marlins will now face off against the Pittsburgh Pirates after coming off of a disappointing series versus the Cleveland Indians. The Fish are looking to recover from the series, and they'll do so with Henderson Alvarez on the mound to face the fortuitous Jeff Locke.

.439 4.51 3.01 2.61 Alvarez Locke 2.36 3.72 4.55 .434

The Fish are looking for Alvarez to continue his hot streak. The Pirates are looking for Locke to continue riding his own hot streak and continue his extended run of success. Both men have been "lucky" to be here and performing this well, but which offense will buckle under that good luck?
