San Francisco vs Miami: Giants Ace Madison Bumgarner Aims to Maul Miami

San Francisco vs Miami: Giants Ace Madison Bumgarner Aims to Maul Miami

SF Giants: On a winning roll after a slow start

Perhaps dealing with a World Series hangover, San Francisco stumbled out of the MLB starting gate with a 4-10 record. Although they still trail the hated Dodgers by 4.5 games in the ML West, the Giants are 11-5 over their last 16 games. That includes a 6-0 mauling of Miami last night. WS MVP Madison Bumgarner (3-1 ERA 3.03) has shaken off a rough start (1-1 ERA 4.63 over his first four starts) and has won two straight allowing one run on seven hits over 15.1 innings pitched.

Miami Marlins: Streaky squad sits fourth in the National League East

Miami has to be wishing they could take a mulligan on their season start as the Marlins posted a 3-11 record over their first 14 contests. Since then, Miami has steadied the ship some as the Marlins are on a 11-7 recent run including their 7-2 crushing of the Giants on Thursday. The Fish are tough to figure out as they sit tied for fifth with a 2.71 team batting average and a middle of the road 3.98 team ERA. LA Dodgers castoff, Dee Gordon has scotched everyone in his path as leads the Majors with a .437 batting average but he missed Friday’s game and is day-to-day with a minor hamstring injury.

Miami vs San Francico MLB Prediction: Prior to getting routed 9-1 by the Giants back on July 18, 2014, Miami had won four straight games when Bumgarner was on the bump. Even if Gordon draws back in Miami is in tough on the road here. We are siding with San Francisco and a 500 unit wager on the money odds posted on thebetting boardbetting board at the TopBet online sportsbook.
