EK: Can you give us a quick scouting report on the pitchers the Marlins will face this series?
SA: Monday will be Greinke. He’s been having a fantastic season thus far. He has pinpoint control this year, better than usual, and has been really attacking the strike zone.
Tuesday is undecided, but we expect it to be youngster Mike Bolsinger, The right hander has been pitching in triple-A, but he got a spot start in San Francisco earlier in the season, He pitched very well in that start, allowing just one earned run in 5.1 innings. He even whiffed Buster Posey. He’s throws hard, and his fastball can reach up to 95-96 on the radar gun.
Wednesday’s game should be left hander Brett Anderson. He had gotten off to a slow start., but has had two good starts in a row. He throws a lot of off-speed pitches, and has had trouble pitching past the sixth inning..

EK: How do you see this series playing out? Any bold predictions?
SA: Well, the Dodgers have played very well at home this season. They are 13-2, and are hitting extremely well at Dodger Stadium. With that in mind, I would say the Dodgers win 2 of 3. I hope.
