Bold Prediction: Eovaldi strikes out seven across even scoreless innings of work. The Giants muster only one hit off of Eovaldi and just three for the game. Giancarlo Stanton goes deep in his return to the lineup and drives in four runs. Gaudin is chased after allowing six earned runs in four inning. Marlins win 7-1!
