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
- SS Thairo Estrada (153 wRC+ this season)
- 1B Wilmer Flores (141)
- DH Darin Ruf (83)
- 3B J.D. Davis (171)
- 2B David Villar (87)
- CF Mike Yastrzemski (94)
- C Joey Bart (112)
- LF Heliot Ramos (41)
- 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%).
Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- CF Jazz Chisholm Jr (102 wRC+ this season)
- 1B Garrett Cooper (135)
- 2B Luis Arraez (207)
- DH Jorge Soler (155)
- LF Bryan De La Cruz (96)
- RF Avisaíl García (27)
- 3B Jon Berti (49)
- C Jacob Stallings (48)
- 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.
