RossInfoMan Posted September 27, 2003 Share Posted September 27, 2003 Marlins open NLDS in San Fran By Joe Frisaro / MLB.com MIAMI -- Winners of a tightly-fought Wild Card race, the Marlins open their National League Division Series Tuesday against the Giants at Pacific Bell Park. The Marlins, who have lost five of six against the Giants, will play the first two games at San Francisco. Game 2 is Oct. 1. After that, the best-of-five series will be played at Pro Player Stadium on Oct. 3 and 4 (if necessary). In their 11th season, the Marlins are making their second postseason appearance. In 1997, the fifth season of the franchise, Florida won the World Series in seven games over Cleveland. The Marlins have lined up their pitching rotation with Josh Beckett (9-8, 3.04) starting Game 1 and Brad Penny tossing the second game. Off on Thursday, Oct. 2, the Marlins will start rookie left-hander Dontrelle Willis at Pro Player Stadium in Game 3. If necessary, lefty Mark Redman would pitch Game 4. Should the series extend to five games, the finale will be Sunday, Oct. 5, at San Francisco with Beckett getting the nod. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
