The Miami Marlins will get a chance to end this West Coast swing on a positive note, as the Fish will look to take the final game from the San Francisco Giants and make it three wins in four tries and five wins in an otherwise ugly road trip. Jacob Turner will be the team's starter opposite Ryan Vogelson

The Marlins would like for Turner to put up a decent performance to finish off this road trip, but Turner's last start versus the Los Angeles Dodger was less than ideal; in 5 1/3 innings, he struck out two while walking one and giving up five runs total.
Ryan Vogelsong retained a level of decent play from his strong 2011 to a surprise 2012 season. Then last year happened and he is struggling to stay in the rotation and continue pitching for the Giants. In his last start, he struck out eight Atlanta Braves hitters and walked one but still gave up four runs in six innings.

No need for an all-points bulletin regarding the absence of Marcell Ozuna, folks, as he's been found in today's lineup. Unfortunately, Giancarlo Stanton was not found in the lineup, as he finally got his much-needed day off after a string of consecutive starts. Ed Lucas will take his place in right field, and Christian Yelich slides down to the third hitting spot. The downside to this is that Adeiny Hechavarria graces us with his presence batting leadoff.
- I'll be here today for Late Afternoon with the Fish, and I'll be dual streaming baseball and the Miami Heat game. Who's doing the same?
- Can Miami produce any runs with this tattered lineup? Resting both Stanton and Jarrod Saltalamacchia might be rough, especially in light of the fact that the Giants are fielding a full-force lineup on the day game after a night game.
Bold Prediction: Giants def. Marlins 6-2
