The Giants won for the 5th time in 6 games after their 5-3 on Friday night. Alex Wood pitched 7 solid innings, giving up one run with 7 strikeouts. From the dish they had 8 hits and were 2-10 with runner in scoring position. Mike Yastrzemski hit a two-run shot for his 3rd of the season. Evan Longoria leads the team with a .291 average, .972 OPS, 4 home runs and 9 RBI.

Starting for the Giants on Saturday will be righty Kevin Gausman. To start the year, he is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 23 strikeouts. In his career against this Marlins lineup, he has allowed a .364 average with 19 strikeouts in 56 at bats.

Miami is 6-4 in their last ten games, 4-3 on the road this season, and the under is 9-7-2 in their games.

San Francisco is 6-4 in their last ten games, 6-1 at home this season, and the under is 13-6 in their games.

Both starters have had some success this season and will be backed by bullpens that rank in the top 5 in WHIP to start the season. However, the difference here is the location, as the Giants have been great at home this year. Considering their solid play of late, I will take my chances with the home team. Give me San Francisco to win.
