The Marlins are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 8-3 in their last 11 vs. National League West and 2-6 in Conleys last 8 starts on grass. The Giants are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Miami, 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and the over is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.
This is not a good spot for the Giants, as they just played 20 innings on Sunday and now have to travel to Miami to play a hot Marlins club that finished it's game early in the afternoon. The Giants bullpen is shot and that's not good with how well the fish are swinging the bats right now. Not to mention the Giants are the Giants, one of the worst teams in the league and not an easy team to back regardless. Have to like Miami in this spot.
