The San Fransisco Giants could use a win here after losing six of their last eight games. The Giants have scored nine runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The San Fransisco Giants have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Brandon Crawford leads the Giants with 78 hits and 32 RBI while Andrew McCutchen and Buster Posey have combined for 135 hits and 58 RBI. Dereck Rodriguez gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 4.34 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. This will be Rodriguez’s second career game against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games, 17-36 in their last 53 road games and 0-4 in Strailys last 4 starts. The Giants are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Marlins are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in San Francisco, 8-2 in the last 10 meetings and the over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
The San Francisco Giants all of a sudden don't know how to hold a lead, while the Miami Marlins are looking like a confident bunch that doesn't give up regardless of the score. It's been awfully weird when these two teams have met this season. The fish obviously hold value with the plus money given the past results against the Giants, but I'm not giving up on San Fran just yet. They're still the better team, play their best at home and need to take advantage of these games if they're going to make up ground in the standings. Keep losing these games and it will be time for the Giants to start selling.
