The Marlins are on fire right now. The Pirates are winning games, but it’s not always apparent how they’re doing it. The Marlins are starting Anibal Sanchez tonight, who’s averaging more than a strikeout per inning and has been generally as dominant as the Marlins hoped he’d be when they acquired him in the Josh Beckett trade oh so many years ago. The Pirates are starting Brad Lincoln, who’d I’d describe as “probably but not certainly better than Kevin Correia.” I don’t have a great feeling about this game.
First pitch tonight is at 7:10.
