Giants vs Marlins: Game 113 Thread

After a 14-inning heartbreaker, the Fish look to rebound with their hottest pitcher.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Marlins are looking to rebound from their extra-innings loss last night.

Pitching Matchup
Team Starter ERA FIP 2016 ZIPS Projected ERA
SF Matt Moore 4.04 4.46 4.41
MIA Tom Koehler 4.05 4.12 4.15

Tom Koehler (8-8) has been Miami's hottest pitcher over his last five three starts, striking out 17 and walking only three in that span. Last week he held the league-best Cubs to only one run over his six innings in a no decision.

Koehler is matched up against Matt Moore (7-7), the Giants' deadline acquisition who pitched great in his first start with the squad. The lefty struck out seven and gave up only three hits in his six-inning no decision, but he also surrendered six walks against the Phillies.

Today's Lineups

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS MIAMI MARLINS
Denard Span - CF Dee Gordon - 2B
Angel Pagan - LF Martin Prado - 3B
Brandon Belt - 1B Christian Yelich - LF
Brandon Crawford - SS Giancarlo Stanton - RF
Conor Gillaspie - 3B Marcell Ozuna - CF
Hunter Pence - RF Chris Johnson - 1B
Joe Panik - 2B Jeff Mathis - C
Trevor Brown - C Miguel Rojas - SS
Matt Moore - LHP Tom Koehler - RHP

Miguel Rojas gives Adeiny Hechavarria a day off at short, while Chris Johnson gets the start at first against the lefty.

Bold Prediction: Koehler keeps in strong form in a 5-2 win.
