Mets Vs. Marlins: Red-Hot Miami Faces Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey On Saturday

The Miami Marlins look to maintain their winning ways when they host the New York Mets on Saturday afternoon. After a dramatic 6-5 victory in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday night, Ozzie Guillen's club has won nine of their past 10 ballgames.

Ricky Nolasco (4-0, 2.72 ERA) takes the hill for Miami on Saturday. In his last three starts, Nolasco has allowed just four runs in 21 1/3 innings, going 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA over that stretch.

The Mets will counter with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (4-1, 3.76 ERA). In his last four starts against the Marlins, Dickey is 4-0 with a microscopic 0.33 ERA. In his career, Dickey is 6-2 with a 3.57 ERA against the Marlins in 10 appearances, eight of which were starts.
