Welcome to Thursday’s Marlins (20-28, +16 RD) vs. Giants (27-22, +21 RD) game thread. It’s Loulapalooza and Pride at the Park. Jorge Cruz also has a pair of tickets for sale.

It’s the opening game of a new series, which means we’ve got a special series preview article, free prop bets and an hour-long livestream with the Fish Stripes staff and special guests.

Our free Marlins prop bets contest has returned...with a few tweaks.

Use this Fish Picks link prior to every Marlins series to submit your predictions. I have divided the Marlins schedule into nine separate “innings” and will be awarding a BreakingT t-shirt to each inning’s points leader. The third inning runs from May 20 through June 9.

Notes: Wood has made 10 career appearances (eight starts) at LoanDepot Park, including a scoreless one last season (5.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K)...Even casual MLB fans are probably aware of how hot Pederson has been at the plate. His 282 wRC+ over the last two weeks is third-highest among all MLB qualifiers during that span...This is the first time all season that San Francisco has used this combination of starting position players.
