Going to the mound today for the Miami Marlins will be Ricky Nolasco. The Marlins right hander has started two games on the road in the 2012 campaign and has been solid with an ERA of 2.40 and a very low WHIP of 0.80. WHIP refers to runners allowed per inning and Nolasco’s average of less than one base runner per inning aids our chances here for the under. Low WHIP pitchers tend to stay away from giving up big innings. His last start was on Saturday and the righty starter allowed just one earned run and one walk to the New York Mets in seven innings of work. Nolasco has been money against San Francisco as the Marlins hurler allowed just one earned run in each of his past three starts against the San Francisco Giants working 22 2/3rd innings. Two of those starts came at the very pitcher friendly ball park in San Francisco. The Miami hitters has struggled mightily on the road in the 2012 campaign as the club pushes across just 2 ½ runs and bats .202 in their 11 games played on the highway. In their past seven games Miami is batting .197 and averaging 2.3 runs a game.
Right hander Matt Cain makes the start for the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. Cain has been outstanding pitching in his friendly home ball park. In two starts at home Matt Cain has allowed no earned runs working nine innings as he threw complete game shut outs in both appearances. The Giants bullpen has been good in the 2012 campaign at home as the unit sits with an ERA of 1.50 in nine games. San Francisco pushes across less than three runs a game at home. Two starters in excellent form at a pitchers park backed by two weak hitting lineups lands us on the under tonight at the sports book.
