Marlins Cy Young stretch

In their history, the Marlns have never had a Cy Young award winner. Dontrelle Willis came close in 2005, finishing second to Chris Carpenter of the Cardinals.

Of late, the Marlins certainly have faced their share of former Cy Young winners. In fact, they are seeing them at a record pace.

On Friday in Toronto, Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco will be matched against Toronto ace Roy Halladay. 

Halladay will be the fifth different Cy Young winner the Marlins will face in the past eight days.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, no team in MLB history has faced five different Cy Young winners in an eight-day span. In fact, Florida just faced four in five days, which also is an MLB record.

Thus far the Marlins are 2-2 in the stretch against former winners. Now, San Francisco features three Cy Young pitchers – Barry Zito, Tim Lincecum and Randy Johnson.

Here’s how the Marlins have fared: 

* June 6 vs. Zito, 2-1 loss

* June 7 vs. Lincecum, 3-2 loss

* June 8 vs. Johnson, 4-0 win

* June 9 vs. Carpenter (Cardinals), 4-3 win.
