Last night was a blast, wasn't it? Let's hope the team can recapture some of that magic tonight as they go for 5 straight wins. Mat Latos takes the hill for the good guys this time, and if the Marlins had that much trouble with Cingrani yesterday, good luck with Mat Latos. Faster fastball, better curveball.

History may be on the Marlins' side, though. Latos has a career 7.50 ERA in 5 starts against the fish, but these ain't... your older brother's Marlins.

They face Kevin Slowey, a 6th year vet who has never pitched at GABP and has never pitched against the Reds. Give 'em hell tonight, GABP.

With all the work that the bullpen got last night, there are still a few arms who should be available. I'm not sure you really need to rule anybody out right now, honestly. Good sign.
