Marlins Game Notes
Marlins Starting Lineup
- 3B Jon Berti (87 wRC+ this season, bats right)
- RF Jorge Soler (116, R)
- DH Garrett Cooper (90, R)
- LF Bryan De La Cruz (116, R)
- 1B Yuli Gurriel (82, R)
- C Nick Fortes (44, R)
- SS Garrett Hampson (79, R)
- CF Peyton Burdick (80, R)
- 2B Xavier Edwards (73, S)
LHP Jesús Luzardo (138 ERA+ this season)
Lineup Changes from Previous Game: Burdick and Gurriel in, Luis Arraez and Joey Wendle out; Soler switches from DH to RF, Cooper switches from 1B to DH, Hampson switches from RF to SS, Edwards switches from CF to 2B
Additional Marlins Notes: The Marlins are dusting off Gurriel after he appeared in only one of their last six games...Everybody in the lineup will have the platoon advantage against the southpaw Wood. Hampson (.433 OPS in 15 PA) has the most head-to-head history with him.
Giants Starting Lineup
- 1B Wilmer Flores (111 wRC+ this season, bats right)
- 2B Thairo Estrada (131, R)
- DH J.D. Davis (125, R)
- LF Mitch Haniger (41, R)
- RF Mike Yastrzemski (115, L)
- 3B Casey Schmitt (167, R)
- C Patrick Bailey (86, S)
- SS Brandon Crawford (51, L)
- CF Bryce Johnson (19, S)
LHP Alex Wood (151 ERA+ this season)
Giants Notes: Michael Conforto is riding the bench coming off an uncharacteristic four-strikeout game, his first since 2019...Wood hasn’t surpassed 75 pitches in any game this season, so expect the San Francisco bullpen to be prominently involved today.
