The Miami Marlins look to complete their sweep against the San Francisco Giants Sunday afternoon at Marlins Park, while also making some history as well.

A win today would give the Marlins their 19th victory in May which would be a franchise record. They will send Ricky Nolasco to the mound, who has won his last four starts against the Giants.

San Francisco will counter with Matt Cain, who has been less than stellar in his last two starts, posting an ERA of 5.53. He has a career ERA of 3.60 in three career starts against Miami.

He will need to be careful when facing Giancarlo Stanton who has manhandled the Giants so far in 2012. In six games he has hit .480 with four home runs, five doubles and seven RBIs. In May, he has carried the Marlins offense hitting .333 with 10 home runs and 25 RBIs.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m.
