Welcome to Wednesday’s Marlins (10-8, -23 RD) vs. Giants (5-11, -9 RD) game thread. The Marlins have won six of their last seven entering this getaway day matinee.

Giants Starting Lineup

  1. SS Thairo Estrada (153 wRC+ this season)
  2. 1B Wilmer Flores (141)
  3. DH Darin Ruf (83)
  4. 3B J.D. Davis (171)
  5. 2B David Villar (87)
  6. CF Mike Yastrzemski (94)
  7. C Joey Bart (112)
  8. LF Heliot Ramos (41)
  9. RF LaMonte Wade Jr. (144)

RHP Alex Cobb (141 ERA+ this season)

Notes: Estrada started the previous two games at left field and second base, respectively...LoanDepot Park is a pitcher-friendly environment, but Cobb historically struggles in road starts (career 4.37 ERA in away games vs. 3.33 ERA at home)...Giants batters have the highest strikeout rate in the majors (27.9 K%), and it’s even higher than usual against left-handers like Trevor Rogers (30.3 K%).

  1. CF Jazz Chisholm Jr (102 wRC+ this season)
  2. 1B Garrett Cooper (135)
  3. 2B Luis Arraez (207)
  4. DH Jorge Soler (155)
  5. LF Bryan De La Cruz (96)
  6. RF Avisaíl García (27)
  7. 3B Jon Berti (49)
  8. C Jacob Stallings (48)
  9. SS Garrett Hampson (65)

LHP Trevor Rogers (104 ERA+ this season)

Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Hampson in, Jean Segura out; Berti switches from SS to 3B

Additional Notes: Even by his standards, García has been hyper-aggressive early in the count. He’s swinging at the first pitch 53.3% of the time this season, which is higher than any qualified MLB hitter...Dylan Floro and A.J. Puk have each pitched on back-to-back days, so you’re likely to see the Marlins go in a different direction if high-leverage relief situations present themselves.

How to Watch/Listen/Follow

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. ET. Watch on Bally Sports Florida or listen to the radio broadcast on Fox Sports 940 Miami.
