The Miami Marlins will play the San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of their series on Saturday afternoon at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California.
The Miami Marlins are 23-22 this season and they have won four of their last five games. Prior to losing Game 1 in this series, Miami won all three games in their series with Washington. The Miami pitching staff has a 4.43 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .253 opponent batting average this season. The Marlins offense has scored 158 runs with a .249 batting average and a .305 on base percentage. Jorge Soler is batting .229 with 11 home runs and 24 RBI’s for the Marlins. The projected starting pitcher for Miami is Braxton Garrett, who is 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP over 36.2 innings pitched this year.
The San Francisco Giants are 21-23 this season and they have won four games in a row. San Francisco won the first game in this series by a score of 4-3 on Friday night. The San Francisco pitching staff has a 4.37 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a .262 opponent batting average. The Giants offense has scored 194 runs with a .243 batting average and a .319 on base percentage this year. J.D. Davis is batting .286 with seven home runs and 23 RBI’s for the Giants. The projected starting pitcher for San Francisco is Logan Webb, who is 3-5 with a 3.20 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 59.0 innings pitched this season.
Miami is 7-15 in their last 22 Saturday games. The under is 17-5-4 in Miami’s last 26 Saturday games and the under is 35-14-3 in their last 52 game two’s of a series. San Francisco is 4-1 in their last 5 game two’s of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 Saturday games. The under is 8-1 in San Francisco’s last 9 game two’s of a series. The under is 17-5-1 in these two teams last 23 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have played well in their last few games, but Miami is the team that is over .500 on the year. The Marlins have one of the worst scoring offenses in the MLB, but that hasn’t stopped them from starting the season well. Miami is starting Braxton Garrett, who has been inconsistent this year. Garrett has allowed one earned run or fewer in three of his last five starts, but he has allowed 15 earned runs in the other two starts during that time. San Francisco is starting Logan Webb, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in five straight starts. I like the Giants to win this game by at least two runs.
