Welcome to Thursday’s Marlins (5-1) vs. Orioles (5-6) game thread.

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.


Marlins Lineup

  1. DH Jonathan Villar
  2. SS Jon Berti
  3. C Francisco Cervelli
  4. 1B Jesús Aguilar
  5. 3B Brian Anderson
  6. RF Lewis Brinson
  7. 2B Logan Forsythe
  8. LF Magneuris Sierra
  9. CF Monte Harrison

P Jordan Yamamoto (2019 stats: 4.46 ERA, 4.51 FIP, 25.2 K%, 38.8 Hard Hit% in 78.2 IP)

Baseball Savant

Notes: Corey Dickerson had played every inning of the young Marlins season until now. He’ll get a rest with a left-hander starting for the O’s...With a win tonight, Don Mattingly can break the tie with Jack McKeon for most managerial victories in franchise history...Prospects Daniel Castano and Jorge Guzman and veteran Mike Morin have yet to enter a game since joining the pitching staff earlier this week. Expect to see at least one of them in relief of Yamamoto.

Orioles Lineup

  1. 2B Hanser Alberto
  2. RF Anthony Santander
  3. SS José Iglesias
  4. LF Dwight Smith Jr.
  5. DH Renato Núñez
  6. C Chance Sisco
  7. CF Austin Hays
  8. 1B Chris Davis
  9. 3B Pat Valaika

P Wade LeBlanc (2019 stats: 5.71 ERA, 5.49 FIP, 17.3 K%, 39.0 Hard Hit% in 121.1 IP)

Baseball Savant

Notes: LeBalanc has struggled against Marlins lineups in the past (.892 OPS allowed to 117 total batters faced), though all of that history happened prior to 2018. Villar homered off him once, but has been retired in their other 10 matchups.
