The Miami Marlins would like not to give up 14 runs again tonight after an ugly 14-10 shootout loss from last night. They would also like the team to score 10 runs again, but both look like they might be challenges tonight versus the San Francisco Giants. Henderson Alvarez will take on Matt Cain in this matchup.

Matt Cain has struggled all year, as he is giving homers up at a career high rate. Henderson Alvarez has been strong thus far, but we just saw two of the Marlins' key young starters falter in a major way just recently. Will the next shoe to drop be Alvarez's?

This lineup is, as always, not even mediocre. But then again, a very similar lineup (with the help of a streaking Justin Ruggiano) scored 10 runs last night, so there's that.
