The Giants will play game two against the Marlins today at 4:10pm in Miami and will look to repeat the incredible offense performance from game one yesterday. The bats are back, Brandon Crawford and Pablo Sandoval both hit home runs and the team had 13 hits in nine innings with a 9-1 win.

Tim Hudson (7-6, 2.87 ERA) will start for the Giants and RHP Henderson Alvarez (6-4, 2.63 ERA) for the Marlins.

Hudson has faced the Marlins a few times in the past and here’s how he matches up against their offense.

Joe Panik went 2 for 5 yesterday and is batting .232 in 2014. He will bat second in the order today after leadoff hitter Hunter Pence.
