Welcome to Sunday’s Marlins (15-17, +21 RD) vs. Brewers (18-16, -7 RD) game thread. Happy Mother’s Day!

During every Marlins game, join in on the Fish Picks prop bets fun. It’s always free to participate and the prizes are real. Please use this link!

Picks are only valid if submitted to us prior to first pitch.

The Fish Picks leaderboard will be updated daily. Nobody picked a Perfect Game on Saturday.

At the end of each month, the Fish Picks points leader—whoever has the most total correct picks—will receive a t-shirt of their choice from our partners at Legends of Dade!

  6. SS Luis Urías

Notes: Amusing contrast in styles between these probable starting pitchers. Brett Anderson’s maximum fastball velocity at this stage of his career is roughly the same as Sandy Alcantara’s average changeup velocity. Anderson has been on the injured list for the past two weeks with a right hamstring strain...Old friend Christian Yelich is still searching for answers for his back problems and won’t be involved in this series.

Marlins Lineup

  1. SS Miguel Rojas
  2. 1B Garrett Cooper
  3. LF Corey Dickerson
  4. RF Adam Duvall
  5. 3B Brian Anderson
  6. CF Lewis Brinson
  7. 2B Isan Díaz
  8. C Sandy León
  9. RHP Sandy Alcantara (2021 season stats: 2.95 ERA, 3.38 FIP, 24.6 K%, 39.5 HardHit% in 42.2 IP)

Notes: Jesús Aguilar gets at least a partial day off. He had played every inning of the homestand entering today...The Marlins were among the MLB leaders in stolen bases during the month of April, but have only two steals as a team since the calendar flipped (one those came on Saturday and it was essentially defensive indifference)...The well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen (haven’t pitched in at least two days) are Anthony Bass, Adam Cimber, Dylan Floro, Yimi García and Jordan Holloway.
