Giants’ starter Bumgarner has been razor sharp on the road for most of the season with a 6-2 record and 1.98 ERA. That said, his last road start was poor allowing 6 runs in 7 innings versus the Athletics and he hasn’t had a quality start in 4 straight. He’s faced the Marlins 4 times in his career and while he hasn’t been horrible San Francisco did lose all 4 of the starts. Nathan Eovaldi takes the mound for the Marlins and he’s been crushed by the Giants in the past. He has pitched well in 3 of his last 4 but all 3 quality starts were on the road. At home he has been awful in his last 3 with 15 runs allowed in just 17.2 innings. Take Over 7.5.
