The San Francisco Giants and the Miami Marlins will continue their MLB series on Wednesday.

In the Tuesday opener of this set, the Marlins slapped 14 hits in a big 11-3 win.

For Wednesday’s game, the Giants will be sending out Madison Bumgarner to start. Over his 68.0 innings and 3-4 record this year, Bumgarner has a 4.10 ERA with 70 Ks and 13 BBs.

San Francisco was out-hit 14-6 in the Tuesday loss. Two players had more than one knock: Joe Panik logged a solo homer and two hits, while Brandon Crawford had two hits and an RBI.

Over on the Marlins’ side, they’re going with Pablo Lopez on Wednesday. In his 51.2 innings and 3-5 record so far, Lopez has a 5.40 ERA with 50 Ks and 14 walks.

Miami’s guys went off on Tuesday, and there were no starters without a hit or a run in that game. Harold Ramirez managed three hits himself with a run and an RBI.

The Giants are 3-12 in their last 15 Wednesday games and 4-1 in Bumgarner’s last five starts. San Fran is 4-1 in Bumgarner’s last five Wednesday starts and 2-6 in his last eight road starts.

Meanwhile, the Marlins are 7-18 in their last 25 in game two of a series and 2-8 in their last 10 Wednesday games. Miami is 3-13 in Lopez’s last 16 starts and 1-5 in his last six versus a team with a losing record.

Bumgarner has been on a nice roll lately, and he’s got quality starts in four of his last five games with a 2-0 record in that time.

As for Lopez, he has two good outings (13.0 innings; four hits; zero earned) and two bad ones (6.2 innings; 17 hits; 14 earned) in his last four starts, but it’s worth noting that his two shutout starts were at home.

I’m going to go with the more consistent Bumgarner here, but given Lopez’s ceiling lately it’s something of a coin flip game. Taking the Giants, but staying away.
