The Miami Marlins will visit the San Francisco Giants in an NL matchup on Sunday. It will be the finale of a four-game set at Oracle Park.
The Marlins took the last game 5-2 after a strong performance from Pablo Lopez. He went 6 innings, allowing 1 run with 7 strikeouts. From the dish, they had 6 hits and were 0-2 with runners in scoring position. Jesus Aguilar homered in the 9th for his second of the season. To start the season, Miami has a .229 team batting average and .659 OPS. Jazz Chisholm Jr. leads the team with 4 home runs and a 1.045 OPS.
The Marlins have not released a starter for Sunday’s game. To start the season, their bullpen has a 4.07 ERA, .108 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 76 innings. Their 3.66 team ERA ranks 9th in the majors.
The Giants lost for the first time this series on Saturday. The bullpen imploded after a great start from Kevin Gausman. He went 8 innings, allowing just 1 run with 11 strikeouts. The bullpen gave up 4 in the ninth, blowing the game. From the dish, the Giants had just 5 hits and were 0-3 with runners in scoring position. To start the season, San Francisco has a .214 team batting average and .682 OPS. Evan Longoria leads the team with a .291 average, 4 home runs and 9 RBI.
Righty Logan Webb will start for the Giants on Sunday. To start the year, he is 0-1 with a 5.87 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 16 strikeouts. This will be the first time he has faced this Marlins lineup in his career.
Miami is 5-5 in their last ten games, 5-4 on the road this season, and the under is 9-8-2 in their games.
San Francisco is 6-4 in their last ten games, 7-2 at home this season, and the under is 13-7 in their games.
The Marlins bullpen has been good this season and will likely be heavily featured in this one. The Giants are trotting out Logan Webb who is far from reliable at this point in the season. The Marlins have been finding ways to win on the road, and they should be motivated with a chance to leave town with a split. Give me Miami to win.
