The Miami Marlins have scored just three runs this series and are 1-8 this season when scoring three or less runs. Christian Yelich leads Miami with 21 hits, Giancarlo Stanton has 10 RBI and Marcell Ozuna has two home runs. Adam Conley gets the ball, and he’s 0-1 with a 4.61 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be Conley’s first career game against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants hope to get back to a .500 record by winning this game. The Giants are back to butting the bat on the ball, as they came into this series combining for just three runs in their last three games. The San Francisco Giants have shown they can be a scoring machine when they want to, and San Fran is 7-3 this year when topping three runs scored. Angel Pagan leads the Giants with 21 hits, Joe Panik has 11 RBI and Matt Duffy has two home runs. Matt Cain takes the hill, and he’s 0-2 with a 6.46 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. Cain is 6-5 with a 3.49 ERA and 80 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 1-5 in their last 6 Sunday games and 1-4 in Conleys last 5 starts. The Giants are 5-2 in their last 7 Sunday games and 1-5 in Cains last 6 starts. The Marlins are 14-7 in the last 21 meetings in San Francisco.
It's really tough to back the Marlins with the way they're playing currently, especially with this lineup not being able to produce runs. Not sure what the issue is, but Miami is fade material until guys start crossing home plate.
