The Miami Marlins and the San Diego Padres will play a 4-game series at the Petco Park. The Marlins lost their last series 0-3 against the Dbacks while the Padres tied a short 2 game series with the Guardians.
The Marlins get here with a 12-12 record and have lost 4 games in a row. The team is averaging .237 at bat scoring 4.08 runs per game and allowing 4.26 runs. Jazz Chisholm Jr leads with 4 home runs, 19 RBI and batting for an average of .329.
Pablo Lopez leads the pitching staff with 3 wins and a 1.29 ERA while he has struck out 30 batters so far.
Jesus Luzardo (2-1, 3.10 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Marlins. Luzardo allowed a run on two hits and four walks while striking out eight in five innings to earn the win over Atlanta on Sunday.
San Diego Padres
The Padres get here with a 16-9 record and have won 6 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 4.76 runs per game with a .231 at bat while allowing 3.96 runs. Manny Machado is leading the team with 5 home runs and 18 RBI while Eric Hosmer has the better batting average with .378.
Joe Musgrove is leading the pitching staff with 4 wins and 1.97 ERA.
Nick Martinez (1-2, 4.12 ERA) will be on the mound for the Padres in the 1st game of the series. Martinez earned the victory during Thursday's 7-5 win over the Reds, allowing two runs on five hits across five innings. He struck out five and walked two..
Miami are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
Miami are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
The total has gone OVER in 8 of San Diego's last 9 games.
San Diego are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.
The Marlins are on 4 game losing streak but they have won their last 5 games on the road. The Padres have won 7 of their last 10 games and the offense continue to respond as they're averaging 6.5 runs per game in their last 8 games. However, Luzardo is the better pitcher here and should complicate things to the Padres for 5 or 6 innings. Nick Martinez was decent in his last 2 starts so I expect a low scoring game and I'm going with the under.
