MIAMI — San Francisco Giants rookie left-hander Andrew Suarez will celebrate a homecoming on Wednesday night when he faces the Miami Marlins for the first time.

Suarez Da'Ron Payne Redskins Jersey , who was a local star at Columbus High as well as the University of Miami, said he will try to approach the game as a business trip.

“I will probably cherish the moment while I’m warming up,” Suarez told the Sun-Sentinel. “But once I step on the mound, it’s game time.”

The 25-year-old is 2-4 with a 5.06 ERA in nine starts this season. His slider eats up lefty batters, holding them to a .208 batting average with one homer and a .562 OPS. Righty batters are hitting .303 with seven homers and an .870 OPS, however.

Suarez was the Giants’ second-round pick in 2015. He started this season as the Giants’ No. 10 prospect overall and No. 2 among lefties. Some scouts had projected him as a two-pitch reliever with his fastball-slider mix. But, largely due to injuries to Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, Suarez is getting his shot in the rotation.

So far Cheap Mike Hughes Jersey , the Giants are 3-6 when Suarez starts, but they have won two in a row with him on the mound.

Suarez has two quality starts this year — both of them at home. In five road starts this year, Suarez is 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA.

The Marlins will counter Suarez with another rookie left-hander, Caleb Smith (5-6, 3.70 ERA), who made his major league debut last year on July 17 with the New York Yankees.

This will be the 16th major league start for Smith, 26, who leads National League rookies with 79 strikeouts. In his 13 starts this season, he is averaging 10.8 strikeouts per nine innings Isaiah Oliver Falcons Jersey , which is improved from his 8.7 stat line of 2017. His walk rate of 4.1 is high but yet improved from his 4.8 figure of last year.

But perhaps the biggest improvement for Smith has been cutting his hits per nine innings from 10.1 to 6.6.

The Marlins are 6-7 when they hand the ball to Smith, who has four quality starts this season. In addition, the Marlins have won three of the past four Smith starts. Smith has pitched well at Marlins Park, going 2-2 with a 2.90 ERA in six starts. That compares well to his 3-4, 4.41 mark on the road.

Over his past seven starts, Smith — who has never faced the Giants — is 4-3 with a 3.16 ERA.

Neither Suarez (92.1 mph) or Smith (92.7 mph) is overpowering in terms of their average velocity. But Suarez, with plus control and a plus slider, distinguished himself in the minors, going 10-10 with a 3.21 ERA last year between Double A and Triple A.

That success helped earn him a shot at the majors Cheap Taven Bryan Jersey , and now he gets to pitch in front of his home crowd.

“Being able to pitch against the Marlins should be fun,” Suarez said. “I’ve been watching the Marlins since I was little.”

Suarez will be trying to stop the Giants’ two-game losing streak. Miami has won the first two games of this series, including Tuesday’s 3-1 victory in which four Marlins pitchers held the Giants to three hits.

Marlins shortstop JT Riddle had the go-ahead hit, a two-run double, and second baseman Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with one RBI.

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford, who entered this series red hot, has gone 0-for-6 with two RBIs in the two games. He is still hitting an impressive .329.

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is about to enter his age-35 season, and the only thing missing on a Hall of Fame career is a Super Bowl championship ring.But if Fitzgerald is to win a championship, it will have to come with the only team he's ever known. Despite ongoing rumors that the Cardinals may trade him to a contender Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , Fitzgerald maintained that he has no intentions to play elsewhere."If I鈥檓 not playing in Arizona, I won鈥檛 be playing anywhere," he said, via Jace Frederick of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I鈥檝e built a good life for myself down there. Playing in the same place for 15 years is a true blessing."The Cardinals are coming off their second straight non-playoff losing season, but they signed veteran journeyman quarterback Sam Bradford and drafted signal-caller Josh Rosen in the first round. If one of them can execute the offense, Fitzgerald and the Red Birds may quickly get back into title contention.Third all-time in both receiving yards and receptions, Fitzgerald has shown zero signs of slowing down. The perennial Pro Bowler is coming off his third consecutive season in which he notched 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards. Keep in mind this is with very mediocre quarterback play and a limited supporting cast around him. Though Fitzgerald has hinted about retirement in the past,聽the future Hall of Famer has maintained that he'd like to keep playing as long as it's at a high level. If that's the case Cheap P.J. Hall Jersey , there's no reason to believe 2017 season will be his last, as Fitzgerald continues to defy age.The Cardinals have a talented defense led by cornerback Patrick Peterson, but they'll be in for a challenge after cutting loose Pro Bowl Safety, Tyrann Mathieu. If the defense can hold its ground and Bradford or Rosen can lead the offense successfully, Fitzgerald just might lead his team to its first Super Bowl..
