The Miami Marlins finally get to go home starting tonight, as they open a long home stand at Marlins Park with the defending champion San Francisco Giants coming by to visit. Nathan Eovaldi will face former Marlin Chad Gaudin in tonight's first matchup.

Uhh, are we talking about the same Chad Gaudin?

Somehow Gaudin has been excellent for the Giants this season, posting a 2.60 ERA and 3.22 FIP in 11 starts this year. Meanwhile, Eovaldi is flashing some tools but not seeing great results, so that is a nice combination for an odd "upset" in this pitching matchup.

8 Jeff Mathis .255
9 Pitcher ---

After a brief stint in an American League city, the Fish are back at home and back to putting a pitcher in their lineup. Given that they are also batting Jeff Mathis, it's not like there wasn't one in there before.
