The Marlins failed to win two games in the previous seven coming into Coors Field, but they could make it two for two at Coors tonight with their best pitcher taking the ball for Fredi Gonzalez.

Johnson averages nearly 95mph with his fastball, with an 84mph slider as his secondary pitch. He also has a "change-up," which can be nearly as fast as Aaron Cook's fastball. His PitchFX data here. Johnson could have held the Nl ERA title his rookie year but fell 5 innings short of qualifying, so he settled for 4th place in the ROY voting. Teammate Hanley Ramirez won that year.

Prediction: Tonight's result will help appease Rockies fans - it will either improve the team record or significantly increase the pressure on the front office to can Hurdle.

Lineups for both teams have yet to be used this season.
