Fish Feeding On Nats -- Lineups (Tuesday)

        If the Marlins continue their domination of the Nationals over the next few days -- either with a sweep or taking two out of three -- they will wind up with their most successful season series ever from a percentage standpoint (minimum of 10 games) against one opponent. They take a 13-2 mark into the series opener tonight at Nationals Park which, frankly, is nothing special compared to most of the other new parks. But that's another story.

        The best record the Marlins have had in a season against an opponent was their 15-4 mark against the Mets in 2004. Their worst (min. 10 games remember): 2-11 versus the Phillies in 1999.

        Tonight's lineups:

        Marlins: SS Hanley Ramirez, C John Baker, 3B Jorge Cantu, 1B Mike Jacobs, 2B Dan Uggla, LF Josh Willingham, CF Cody Ross, RF Jeremy Hermida, P Scott Olsen.

        Nationals: 2B Anderson Hernandez, SS Alberto Gonzalez, 3B Ryan Zimmerman, CF Lastings Milledge, RF Elijah Dukes, 1B Aaron Boone, LF Willie Harris, C Wil Nieves, P Shairon Martis.
