The Marlins are struggling with a 19-36 record and a 9-17 away record. Braxton Garrett is the probable starting pitcher for Miami.

Key Players:

  • Home Runs: Bryan De La Cruz (9 HR)

Braxton Garrett has a 1-0 record with a 5.30 ERA and a WHIP of 1.02 over 18.2 innings. His high ERA suggests he has been prone to giving up runs, which could be a challenge against a potent Padres lineup.

Key Players:

  • Home Runs: Fernando Tatis Jr. (9 HR)

Yu Darvish has been impressive with a 4-2 record, a 3.04 ERA, and a WHIP of 0.99 over 53.1 innings. His ability to control games and limit runs gives the Padres a significant advantage.

Game Odds:

Team Moneyline Total Run Line
MIA (19-36) +145 o7.5 (+105) +1.5 (-145)
SD (29-28) -170 u7.5 (-115) -1.5 (+125)


For this matchup, we predict the San Diego Padres will secure the win. Here's why:

Yu Darvish has been in excellent form this season, boasting a 3.04 ERA and a WHIP of 0.99, indicating his strong control and ability to limit opposing offenses. In contrast, Braxton Garrett's high ERA of 5.30 suggests he has been less effective at preventing runs.

The Padres have a more potent lineup with players like Fernando Tatis Jr. and Jurickson Profar providing consistent offensive output. Additionally, Jake Cronenworth has been a key contributor with 35 RBIs, further strengthening the Padres' chances of outscoring the Marlins.

Considering the Marlins' overall struggles this season, especially on the road, and the Padres' home-field advantage and stronger pitching, San Diego is well-positioned to come out on top in this game.

Pick: San Diego Padres (-170)
