Giants, Marlins to play doubleheader Sunday

May 25, 2008 - 7:24 AM MIAMI (Ticker) -- The San Francisco Giants and Florida Marlins will play a doubleheader Sunday after the second game of their three-game series was rained out Saturday night.

Mark Hendrickson (6-2) will start the first game for Florida against Matt Cain (2-3).

Rookie Patrick Misch (0-0) will look for his first career win for San Francisco in Game Two. Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez will not name a starter until after Game One.

Sunday's first game is scheduled to start at 1:10 EDT, with the second game to begin approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the opener.

After a two-hour, 53-minute rain delay, Saturday's game was postponed here for the first time since September 3-5, 2004, when Hurricane Francis wiped out an entire three-game series against the Chicago Cubs.

The Giants, who matched their longest winning streak of the season at three games with Friday's 8-2 victory over Florida, will be aiming to win four in a row for the first time since a six-game run from September 13-18.

San Francisco had dropped six straight before its current winning streak.

The National League East-leading Marlins (27-20), who have won three of four, are hoping to end a five-game losing streak to San Francisco and avoid their sixth consecutive home loss against the Giants.

No one has shouted yet.
