Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Miguel Rojas
  2. 2B Isan Díaz
  3. 3B Starlin Castro
  4. 1B Neil Walker
  5. C Jorge Alfaro
  6. RF Lewis Brinson
  7. CF Magneuris Sierra
  8. LF Jon Berti
  9. SP Elieser Hernandez (5.24 ERA, 5.76 FIP, 22.8 K%, 32.1 Hard Hit% in 77.1 IP)

Notes: This may be the best opportunity that the Marlins get the rest of the season to win consecutive games. They haven’t done that since the Throwback Weekend series against the Diamondbacks in July...With at least three official at-bats today, Díaz will graduate from prospect eligibility. As you’re well aware, his major league production has been ugly thus far (.157/.255/.268, 3 HR)...Christian Cevallos takes you through this week’s leading Marlins news.

Giants Lineup

  1. CF Mike Yastrzemski
  2. 1B Brandon Belt
  3. 3B Evan Longoria
  4. C Stephen Vogt
  5. SS Brandon Crawford
  6. RF Mike Gerber
  7. LF Joey Rickard
  8. 2B Mauricio Dubon
  9. SP Johnny Cueto (2018 stats: 3.23 ERA, 4.71 FIP, 17.8 K%, 30.4 Hard Hit% in 53.0 IP)

Notes: Cueto is set to make only his second start since returning from Tommy John surgery. He threw 69 pitches during an excellent outing on Tuesday (5.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K), so presumably the leash will be even longer today.
