After sweeping the San Francisco Giants earlier this month, the Miami Marlins will hope to find a similar result as they head to California to open a four-game series. The Giants currently sit at 23-21, while the Marlins are one game better at 24-20. Each club is 6-4 over the last ten games.

Anibal Sanchez (2-2, 2.32 ERA) will be on the mound for the Marlins. Sanchez is 3-0 with a 0.87 ERA in four career starts against San Francisco. His counterpart will be Ryan Vogelsong (2-2, 2.27 ERA), who is 1-2 with a 1.59 ERA against Miami. Sanchez and Vogelsong squared off earlier this month when the two teams last met. They both allowed one earned run, but the Marlins came out on top, 3-2.

Jose Reyes, who had two RBIs in last night's loss to the Rockies, will look to lead Miami to their 17th win this month, which would be a franchise record. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:10 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports Florida.
