Anibal looks to continue his success vs the Pirates
- Updated: May 14, 2012
Yesterday, Giancarlo Stanton was the hero for the Marlins by hitting a walk-off grand slam in the 9th inning, leaving the New York Mets on the field and wining the series. Today, the Marlins open up a 2-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight in Miami.
Anibal Sanchez (2-0), who has been very solid this year, will start for the Marlins. His last outing was a no-decision against the Astros in Houston. He went seven innings while allowing no earned runs on five hits and striking out eight batters.
The Pirates will go with the RHP Brad Lincoln (2-0) , who will make his first start. He is replacing Erik Bedard, who is suffering from back spasms.
Anibal Sanchez is 2-1 with a 1.64 ERA with a 0.86 WHIP and 24 strikeouts against the Pirates in the last 5 years .
Brad Lincoln hasn’t thrown more than 44 pitches in a game this season in a relief role, but he has a 0.63 ERA which is third-lowest among National League relievers.
