Shane’s Free Pick

The Marlins have struggled in Alcantara’s stats and it’s going to be no different in this game. DeSclafani sits with an ERA of 3.06 and he’s going to lockdown a Marlins offense that has had issues stringing together hits all season. The Giants will also score enough against Alcantara. Back the Giants on the money line.
