Marlins vs Giants Free Pick May 2, 2012

May 02, 2012

The Miami Marlins have started the season much slower than was anticipated by their fans and management. The Marlins will take on the San Francisco Giants today in game 2 of their three game series out west. The Giants are starting to come around and have a record of 12-11. The Marlins have had problems offensively as they were only able to muster six hits in their 2-1 win over Matt Cain and the Giants Tuesday night. It was only Miami’s second victory in its last 10 games. In seven of their last 10 games, the Marlins have only managed to score two runs or less.

Barry Zito will go on the mound for the Giants. Zito is 1-0 with an ERA of 1.67 and is starting to look like the pitcher he was in his prime, as he has yielded two runs or less in each of the four games, he has started and has a 0.93 WHIP.

Miami will counter with Carlos Zambrano who is 0-2 with an ERA of 3.24. He has thrown well against the Giants in his career, as he has an ERA of just 0.86 in four starts against San Francisco since the 2009 season and is 5-1 over his career in 12 starts against the Giants.

The Giants heavy hitters have not fared well against Zambrano. Pablo Sandoval is just 2 for 10 against the former Cub and Buster Posey has only 1 hit in 9 at bats against Zambrano. On the season however, Sandoval is hitting .323 and Posey .333.

The teams are evenly matched and the Giants are favored in this game at home -125, with Miami at +115. The run total is set at 6 ½. The Giants will come back from last night’s loss and defeat the Marlins in this matchup and the run total will cash out to those taking the UNDER.
