The Miami Marlins need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Marlins have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in seven of their last eight games. The Marlins have lost eight of their last 10 games when scoring three or less runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 113 hits and 20 RBI while Adeiny Hechavarria and Marcell Ozuna have combined for 57 RBI. The Miami Marlins have lost five of their last seven home games. Dan Haren takes the hill, and he’s 6-5 with a 3.38 ERA and 70 strikeouts this season. Haren is 7-6 with a 2.92 ERA and 92 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.
The Giants are 17-4 in their last 21 during game 2 of a series and 7-2 in Hestons last 9 starts. The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 0-4 in Harens last 4 starts. The Giants are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Miami.
Haren has probably been the most consistent pitcher this season for the Marlins. And Heston has been solid for much of the season. With both pitchers in decent form and the bats extremely quiet for the fsh, I'm siding with the under here.
