The Miami Marlins and the San Francisco Giants are going to tangle in the first of a three-game series coming out of the All-Star break. The Fish send out Captain EO, Nathan Eovaldi, in the first game of the set.

The Marlins are hoping for a second half improvement from Nathan Eovaldi, who has decent numbers but has falling strikeouts. Madison Bumgarner has been dominant for much of the last few seasons and appears to be on his way to the next step. Which pitcher will start taking that step tonight?
