Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (3-1) vs. Orioles (5-4) game thread. This article will be used to preview and discuss both games of the doubleheader (keep in mind that they’ll each be seven innings long instead of the traditional nine).

Fish Picks is BACK and better than ever! Our free-to-play daily prop bets contest is open to all fans. I was thrilled to see so many participants during the season-opening series against the Phillies. Courtesy of a new Fish Stripes partnership with Fantom Drip, weekly points leaders will win their choice of a Marlins face covering (five different varieties available). First winner to be selected based on July 24-August 9 point totals.

The Fish Picks leaderboard will update daily to let you know where you stand.

Notes: After debuting for the Fish in Tuesday’s game, Harrison tweeted about his mix of emotions and the significance of the milestone. “There’s no better feeling (than) doing what you love,” he said...Harrison ranks No. 10 on MLB Pipeline’s updated Marlins top prospects list. Right-hander Jorge Guzman, who was also called up on Tuesday, is 24th on the list...More reaction to new-look roster from our own Ethan Budowsky.
