Miami Marlins vs. San Francisco Giants: Game 42 Thread and Ichthyomancy

Marc Serota

The Miami Marlins will finish up the last leg of their 11-game West Coast road trip by starting their series versus the San Francisco Giants tonight. The Fish send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound versus Matt Cain.

The Miami Marlins salvaged a victory in their series versus the Los Angeles Dodgers and now the team will look to move on from the worst of this week and start anew versus the San Francisco Giants. The Fish begin a four-game series with the Giants, with Nathan Eovaldi and Matt Kemp facing off.

The Marlins will send out Nathan Eovaldi following his worst start of the 2014 season. Eovaldi struck out just three versus four walks in his last start versus the San Diego Padres, and he will look to do better with the Giants' improved lineup.

Matt Cain looked broken last season compared to his typically strong play, right on time for his five-year extension to kick in. This year, he is continuing to have struggles with home runs while posting a worse walk rate than before. He'll try and manage the Marlins' lineup.

The Marlins will rest Marcell Ozuna again, with hot bat Reed Johnson getting another start. This may not be the best idea against the righty Cain.
