San Francisco Giants
The Giants were not able to complete a sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, falling just short in a 6-5 contest. Despite that, the Giants are off to a hot start and trail only the Dodgers in the NL West.
The Giants have won five of their last eight games and currently sit at 11-7. They are three games back of the Dodgers for first in the division.
The Giants offense has fueled them to a hot start this season. They have scored 17 runs in their last three games and are 5-3 this season when scoring four or more runs. Evan Longoria has been playing well this year, leading the Giants in hits with 16 and RBI’s with nine.
After going through some struggles in previous seasons, Aaron Sanchez is starting to fins himself a bit out west. The former Blue Jays hurler is 0-1 with a 2.45 ERA and 12 strikeouts this season. He does, however, own a career ERA of 6.00 against the Marlins.
The Marlins have split their last six games and are currently third in the NL east, sitting a game behind the New York Mets. The Marlins found a way to bounce back following their loss on Tuesday, blanking the Orioles 3-0.
Southpaw Daniel Castano gets the starting call for the second time this season for the fish. Castano made a five inning appearance against the Giants earlier in the season and performed well, allowing one run on three hits with two walks and no strikeouts in a game the Marlins went on to win 4-1.
Miguel Rojas leads all Marlins with 18 hits and six RBI while Starling Marte and Corey Dickerson have combined for 35 hits and 11 RBI. The Marlins have performed well on the road this season and have won four of their last five games away from Florida.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
The Giants, not the Padres, are the second best team in the NL West. The Giants have played a very balanced and effective brand of baseball to start the year, and that should continue Thursday. Having already seen Castano this year, the Giants should have an advantage in this contest and will take better approaches at the plate compared to the one run they mustered the last time they faced him. Sanchez has been throwing well for the Giants as well and should lift them to a win.
