Three of the Marlins' rookie starters have 10 or more wins. Can a fourth make a run at double-digit victories?

Ten actually may not be in reach, but 22-year-old Anibal Sanchez is striving for his sixth big-league win on Sunday afternoon against the Brewers.

 

Manager Joe Girardi said Sanchez likely will have six starts left in the season. And if the right-hander had not been at Double-A Carolina until June 25, he already may be a 10-game winner.

 

Sanchez will take the mound with the Marlins riding a six-game winning streak. Florida has beaten the Brewers twice in the four-game series.

 

Now, in the midst of their second-longest winning streak of the season, the Marlins are four games behind the Wild Card-leading Reds with 33 games remaining.

 

The Brewers will start lefty Chris Capuano, who is 3-6 with a 4.08 ERA on the road.

 

Sanchez has been especially effective at home, posting a 3-1 mark with a 2.87 ERA.

 

Pitching matchup

 

 

 

FLA: RHP Anibal Sanchez (5-2, 3.44 ERA)

Sanchez is showing no signs of slowing down. In his last start, the 22-year-old rookie worked seven solid innings, giving up one run on four hits as he beat the Nationals. It was the right-hander's first win since July 25 at Atlanta. In his last four starts, Sanchez had been 0-2 despite having some impressive performances. For instance, he tossed six shutout innings and allowed three hits in a no-decision at the Dodgers on Aug. 15.

 

 

 

MIL: LHP Chris Capuano (11-8, 3.55 ERA)

Capuano labored through six shutout innings in his last start for his first win since making the National League All-Star team. Working without his sharp command, Capuano held the Rockies scoreless on three hits and three walks for his first win since a six-hit shutout of the Cubs on July 6. He was 0-4 with a 5.10 ERA in his first seven starts after the break.

 

Player to watch

First baseman Mike Jacobs, who drove in three runs on Friday, added a home run on Saturday night.

This is going to be a tough game for us but hopefully our bats stay hot and Sanchez continues to pitch good. :gofishb

Appears to be the toughest assignment for Marlins hitters so far this series.

 

A win today at home would be a MONSTER one.

 

 

High scoring game on tap (as are most Sunday day games at home)

 

note: Gross is in for the Bucks and Clark is out.
