New, comments

The Miami Marlins head west for a three-game series versus the Arizona Diamondbacks, with Tom Koehler on the mound versus Chase Anderson.

The Miami Marlins are taking their recent success westward, as the Fish face off against the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first time in the regular season. This will be a three-game set starting tonight with a little Late Night With the Fish! Tom Koehler kicks things off for Miami versus Chase Anderson.

I don't know much about Chase Anderson, who wasn't much of a prospect before his 48 1/3 innings this season. I know that Tom Koehler wasn't much of a prospect either, but did you know that quietly, he has put up two very nice starts recently? He put up a 3.52 FIP with a 24.6 percent strikeout rate in June, so something must be clicking for him. Let's see if it lasts in the desert heat of Chase Field.

Lineup

Today's Lineups

MIAMI MARLINS ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
C. Yelich - LF Ender Inciarte - CF
Donovan Solano - 2B David Peralta - LF
G. Stanton - RF P. Goldschmidt - 1B
Casey McGehee - 3B Miguel Montero - C
Garrett Jones - 1B Aaron Hill - 2B
Marcell Ozuna - CF Martin Prado - 3B
J. Saltalamacchia - C Gerardo Parra - RF
A. Hechavarria - SS Didi Gregorius - SS
Tom Koehler - RHP Chase Anderson - RHP

More of the same for Miami's lineup tonight. Didi Gregorius starts at short for Arizona, and Miami would be wise to keep an eye on him.

Notes

- I won't be here tonight because I will be at work all evening. Enjoy the game without me fellas!

- I have updated Ichthyomancy point totals to this point! We need more players everyone, just so we can get attendance points to count and more competition! Jigokusabre, your defending champion, has a strong lead over gatorfan4life, but it's not insurmountable just yet! Here's your full leaderboard!
