It’s time for the second game of the series between the San Francisco Giants and the Miami Marlins, and let’s all hope that it goes better than the first game of the series went. A win sure would be nice for the soul. How about one of those, Giants?
To try and get one, they turn to lefty Alex Wood, who makes his third start of the year. Wood, who has yet to earn a decision, has been solid, with a 1.17 ERA, a 3.98 FIP, and 8 strikeouts to 5 walks in 7.2 innings. He was excellent in his last outing against the Los Angeles Dodgers, giving up just 1 hit and 3 walks in 4.2 scoreless innings, while striking out 5.
On the other side is righty Edward Cabrera, a 23 year old who is already playing in his third MLB season. He’s off to a slow start, with an 0-1 record, a 4.63 ERA, and a 5.21 FIP. Most exciting for the Giants, who love to work counts, is that Cabrera has issued 14 walks in 11.2 innings, with 10 strikeouts.
Also, the Giants made a move before the game, optioning Matt Beaty and replacing him with Brett Wisely. Wisely, who made the Opening Day roster and appeared in the first game of the season — but didn’t bat, and was optioned the next day — slots into the starting lineup, where he’ll get the first at-bat of his MLB career.
Get a win, Giants. We’re asking you nicely.
