John Ely has allowed one earned run in seven innings in each of his last two starts. He looks to make it three in a row, against the Marlins.

Nate Robertson has faced the Dodgers twice in his career. He pitched six scoreless innings in a win in 2008, and allowed four runs in five innings in a no-decision in 2005. He has allowed nine runs in 8 1/3 innings over his last two starts.

Casey Blake has 11 hits in 33 at-bats against the southpaw, with six home runs. Ronnie Belliard is hitting .320/.433/.480 in 30 plate appearances against Robertson, while lefty killer Reed Johnson is just two for 16.

Tonight is an early start, with fireworks after the game.
