Marlins Vs. Astros: Anibal Sanchez Takes the Mound As Marlins Look For Series Win

The Miami Marlins got a shutout and a four run win in their first game against the Houston Astros in their first game of the series on Monday. They'll go for a very early series win on Tuesday night. First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 pm and you can find the game on Fox Sports Florida.

The pitching matchup in Tuesday's game will be pretty interesting and is between two guys who can be almost unhitable when they are on their game (in one case, completely unhitable). The Marlins will be trotting out Anibal Sanchez while the Astros will send out Wandy Rodriguez. They are a combined 2-0 on the year, with both wins belonging to Sanchez. Wandy has pitched pretty well so far, as you can tell with his zero losses, but he hasn't gotten the run support to register any wins. Anibal Sanchez will seek to keep it that way on Tuesday.
