Stanton batting fifth on Wednesday
SAN FRANCISCO — The Marlins look to claim a series victory on Wednesday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
Behind Ricky Nolasco’s strong 8 1/3 innings outing on Tuesday, the Marlins took the first game, 5-1, over the Giants.
Chris Volstad takes the mound on Wednesday, while San Francisco is going with lefty Madison Bumgarner.
Mike Stanton, who has nine home runs in May and 11 on the season, went deep on Tuesday off Matt Cain. It was just the 20th homer hit at AT&T Park this year.
Against left-handed starters, the Marlins are 6-6 this year. In 2010, the club won a franchise most 34 games against southpaws. The Marlins are hitting .263 against lefties, which is the fourth highest average in the National League.
