Marlins LIVE! So Nice, They'll Play Twice: Colorado Rockies @ Florida Marlins (Doubleheader)

Ernie_Banks Good afternoon baseball fans, George Richards here at Miami Gardens Stadium ready for a fun-filled day of Miami Marlins baseball.

As Ernie Banks says, ''Let's play two!''

The Fish and Mountains got rained out last night, so we have an early afternoon double-dip. First pitch today is at 1:35, with the second game scheduled for 25 minutes after Game 1 comes to a close.

Florida goes with Chris Volstad (8-9) in Game 1, with Rick Vandenhurk (2-1) going in the nightcap. Colorado counters with Aaron Cook (10-4) and Jorge De La Rosa (10-8).

As far as television goes, nothing until FSN picks up Game 1 in Ghostbusters progress at 3:30 and then continues coverage through Game 2. You can always pick up the radio feed on XM Radio or on AM-790. Or come on out to the ballstadium.

Plenty of room to sprawl out.

With no television coverage, check back here throughout the afternoon for quick hit updates. It's fun and it's free. You cannot beat that I assure you.

-- Here are the lineups for Game 1:

Colorado (64-52, 2 game lead on FLA in wild card): CF Dexter Fowler, LF Carlos Gonzalez, 1B Todd Helton, SS Troy Tulowitzki, RF Brad Hawpe, 3B Ian Stewart, 2B Clint Barmes, C Chris Ianetta, RHP Aaron Cook.

Florida (62-54, 4 games back in NL East): LF Chris Coghlan, 1B Nick Johnson, SS Hanley Ramirez, 3B Jorge Cantu, C John Baker, 2B Dan Uggla, CF Cody Ross, RF Ross Gload, RHP Chris Volstad.

I'm stunned how unprofessional everybody associated with Game 1 of today's doubleheader starting on TV 2 hours late is. Only a team that deliberately starts games at 6pm when they're not permitted to televise them would be involved with that.

Gotta love that F List swap shop caliber talent they get to perform at games. More KC, with or without the sunshine band. Marlins are a bush league organization at the top.


George, it is kids sunday in game 2 of the Marlins broadcast -- they will teach how to score games... maybe for those kids who are follow game here online u can go over how each play is scored throughout this first game to get them warmed up!?

That's a great idea! E-9
