The Marlins are red hot and have had great success against tonight’s opponent in tonight’s venue.
Florida Marlins at San Diego Padres
Florida took game one of this three-game series against the first-place Padres, 4-2, at Petco Park. The club had dropped five of its first six games against San Diego this season, but they have won 10 of 13 at today’s venue. Since going 2-7 against the Friars in 2000, the Fish have tallied a winning 32-29 mark against them. It marked the 12th win in their last 18 games, as they continue a seven-game road trip (3-2) tonight. The Marlins are 32-39 against right-handed starters (-630) compared to 20-12 versus lefties this season. On the season, Florida has gone 15-18 versus NL West clubs and have gone 205-318 against Western foes in their 18 years in the league. Playing on Saturdays has been a bit problematic for the young club, posting a 6-11 record this season (-690), but they are 34-32 over the last three years.
The Phillies look to make it eight straight against the Padres, but must break a four-game losing streak during the day.
San Diego Padres at Philadelphia Phillies
San Diego is looking to avoid losing three straight for the first time since getting swept at home by the Dodgers from May 14-16, but they’ve yet to drop three consecutive road games this season. The Padres are still proud of entering the month with the best record in the NL for the first time in franchise history. Much of the team’s success has been directly linked to a pitching staff that currently ranks second among all Major League teams with a 2.98 overall ERA, which also is third at 3.63 on the road. The club is 10-8 during day games (+280) and a resilient 14-8 following a loss this season (+720).
