Game Preview

Trevor Richards (3-6, 3.92 ERA, 78 K) lasted just five innings his last time on the mound because of a high pitch count, but he allowed just one run and struck out seven. Over his last four starts (23 23 innings), he’s allowed just two earned runs for an 0.76 ERA.

John Gant (3-4, 4.12 ERA, 55K) hasn’t had the same success starting as he has out of the bullpen this year. He’s 1-4 with a 4.63 ERA and has averaged five innings per start since moving into the rotation.

Thread Question:

I have several friends that are Cardinals fans, and I always want to see the Marlins perform well against them and their “best fans in baseball.” Is there a certain team that you want to see the Marlins whoop up on more than others?
