The San Francisco Giants make the long trip to South Florida to battle the Miami Marlins.
The San Francisco Giants are once again putting the pressure on National League West leading Los Angeles. After downing Colorado 6-3 on Sunday the Giants have won seven of ten. The Rockies had been hitting the ball well but Madison Bumgarner controlled the scoreboard with two runs scored on five hits and two BB while striking out eight over 7.2 innings of work. SF totaled ten hits with Bumgarner going deep and scoring twice while Matt Duffy and Brandon Crawford hit solo bombs. Buster Posey went 2-4 and knocked in three runs while Duffy also scored three times. Ryan Vogelsong looks to continue his hot pitching when he opens the series on the mound at Miami. Vogelsong has not allowed a run in back to back outings with eight hits and four BB allowed in 12.2 innings.

The Miami Marlins have been struggling on the mound and at the plate and the result is a slow fade in the National League East. A 2-0 loss to the visiting Dodgers on Sunday has the Fish staring at defeats in eight of eleven. In the process a great outing on the hill by rookie Jose Urena went by the wayside with a run plated on four hits and four bases on balls through five innings pitched. The offense never got going against Zack Greinke with five hits that saw Christian Yelich go 2-3 with a double while also drawing a walk. Dan Haren draws his second start of the season against San Francisco on Tuesday night. Haren is coming off of a 5-1 loss to St Louis where he allowed four runs on seven hits in six frames.
The over is 7-1 in San Francisco’s last 8 vs. National League East and is 12-3-1 in their last 16 games following a win while the Giants are 8-2 in their last 10 Tuesday games. The under is 12-4-1 in Miami’s last 17 home games and is 22-8-1 in their last 31 on grass while going 18-7-2 in the Marlins last 27 overall. I’m just going with the hot team at a great price which happens to be the better team…
