After a devastating end to their 2020 campaign with a 3rd place in the division, the Giants have done a far better job this time around to make it to the play-off games. Despite starting off on the wrong foot with a defeat against Mariners, they did a mockery of Padres and Rockies in the fixtures that followed.
In the last 5 outings, they have dispatched Phillies on two occasions and likely to make it three on three with a win against Marlins here. They are currently sitting in 2nd spot in NL West and are having an impeccable home record so far.
On the other hand, the Miami Marlins did have a breakthrough season in 2020 with a play off berth after a gap of 17 years. This not only lifted their spirits but also projected them to be one of the firm favorites this time around. They were off with consecutive defeats against Rays and were just with one victory in six games when they faced Mets.
From then on, things started to get better for the underdogs as they hammered Braves, Giants and Orioles to keep themselves afloat. With two defeats on the trot, the Marlins are struggling in 4th spot in NL East group.
