  1. LF Thairo Estrada (174)
  2. 1B Wilmer Flores (117)
  3. DH Darin Ruf (69)
  4. 3B J.D. Davis (174)
  5. 2B David Villar (100)
  6. CF Mike Yastrzemski (90)
  7. C Joey Bart (107)
  8. RF Heliot Ramos (5)
  9. SS Brandon Crawford (74)

RHP Logan Webb (90 ERA+ this season)

Notes: Sunday’s game between the Giants and Tigers was postponed, but only after a delay of nearly five hours and additional flight complications, so San Francisco players are at a rest disadvantage...Webb is making his first start since signing a five-year, $90 million contract extension...Giants batters have the highest strikeout rate in the majors (27.8 K%) and it’s particularly bad against lefties like Jesús Luzardo (30.9 K%).

Marlins Game Notes

  1. CF Jazz Chisholm Jr (80 wRC+ this season)
  2. DH Garrett Cooper (148)
  3. 2B Luis Arraez (221)
  4. LF Bryan De La Cruz (105)
  5. 1B Yuli Gurriel (105)
  6. 3B Jean Segura (16)
  7. RF Jesús Sánchez (32) (36)
  8. C Nick Fortes (31)
  9. SS Garrett Hampson (91)

LHP Jesús Luzardo (231 ERA+ this season)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Fortes, Gurriel, Hampson and Sánchez in, Jon Berti, Avisaíl García, Jorge Soler and Jacob Stallings out; Cooper switches from 1B to DH

Additional Notes: The Marlins have won four straight Luzardo starts dating back to 2022. They had lost nine in a row prior to that...García would ordinarily be in there against a lefty, but he’s recovering from a right wrist contusion...Thanks to George Soriano’s long outing on Sunday, all the other members of the Marlins bullpen should be available today in relief of Luzardo.
