Bring out the pink bats! In the final game of a four-game series in San Francisco, Miami will look to win their second in a row, after beating the Giants 6-2 last night. Mat Latos will take the mound for the Fish, while Ryan Vogelsong will start for San Francisco.

In his last start, Mat Latos (1-3) picked up his first win on the season, on 6.1 strong innings pitched, fanning six Nationals. Today, Latos hopes to stay hot and shut down a Giants offense that has scored less than three runs in 2 out of the last 3 games

Giants' starter Ryan Vogelsong (1-2) hasn't started out his season as he would have liked. However, he, like Latos, picked up his first win in his last start, going 7 innings against the Padres. He'll look to keep the Giants afloat against the Miami offense.

The Fish will look to keep up the scoring in today's game, after being shut out in the second game of this series. Dee Gordon is hoping to make an impact in his first game back since missing the last two games. Giancarlo Stanton will get a chance to rest today, with Ichiro taking his place.

Norichika Aoki has experienced success against Latos, batting .263 with two home runs in his career.

Notes

-Can Mat Latos churn out another productive start?

-Will Dee Gordon be effective in his return?

-Can the Miami bats succeed despite Vogelsong's recent success at AT&T Park?

Bold Prediction: Marlins win series thanks to a 6-3 win over the Giants in the series finale.
