The Miami Marlins have a chance to pick up a rare series win, even rarer since it is a four-game series against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants. The Fish and Giants tangle one more time, and on the mound for Miami will be recent returning starter Nathan Eovaldi. He is set to face off against Matt Cain.

Eovaldi did not have a great start in his six-inning debut earlier this week versus the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he did have one shining aspect about him: his blazing fastball velocity. It remains to be seen if he can keep that up today versus the Giants.

Matt Cain has struggled so badly that he has forever earned the ire of Fish Stripes reader Jigokusabre, who would like nothing more than the Fish to continue his season-long immolation.

Ed Lucas is on fire, Justin Ruggiano is making yet another start, and Giancarlo Stanton, Logan Morrison, and the re-heating Marcell Ozuna are anchoring the middle of the lineup? Dare I say, this Marlins lineup could be in the middle- to low-20's in offensive capability!

Bold Prediction: Giants def. Marlins 5-1
