The Miami Marlins registered their only their second win in 10 games yesterday night as they defeated the San Francisco Giants in the first of a three-game series. The Fish now get a chance to send their fifth starter versus the opposing Giants' fifth starter, except both pitchers are performing surprisingly well in 2012. Can the Fish muster enough offense against a hot Barry Zito, and can Carlos Zambrano prevent a typically weak Giants offense from scoring runs?

In order to expedite the game thread, I will just be giving you guys the numbers and bold prediction.
