The Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants begin a four-game series Thursday night.
The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Marlins have allowed 14 runs in their last three games and six or more runs in three of their last four games. The Marlins have lost nine straight games when allowing more than three runs. Offensively, Dee Gordon leads Miami with 49 hits and 11 RBI while Giancarlo Stanton and Adeiny Hechavarria have combined for 44 RBI. The Miami Marlins have split their last six games on the road. Dan Haren gets the ball, and he’s 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. Haren is 6-6 with a 2.94 ERA and 89 strikeouts in his career against the Giants.

The San Francisco Giants look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Giants have allowed nine runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last eight games. The Giants have won nine straight games when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Angel Pagan leads San Fran with 36 hits and eight RBI while Brandon Crawford and Buster Posey have combined for 26 RBI. The San Francisco Giants have won eight of their last nine games on their home field. Tim Hudson takes the hill, and he’s 1-2 with a 3.78 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. Hudson is 15-4 with a 2.87 ERA and 124 strikeouts in his career against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Harens last 5 starts. The Giants are 10-4 in their last 14 during game 1 of a series and 3-9 in Hudsons last 12 starts with 4 days of rest. The Marlins are 12-3 in the last 15 meetings in San Francisco.
Both teams have been decent for most of the year at allowing limited runs. I like the under in this spot, especially with the way the Giants are pitching.
