Monday MLB action features the Miami Marlins traveling to the west coast to oppose the San Diego Padres.
The struggling Miami Marlins have lost three in a row and six of eight after falling 5-2 to the visiting Nationals on Sunday. Miami starter Elieser Hernandez was charged with a par of runs over five frames to drop to 0-2 while Jarlin Garca gave up three runs in two innings.

The Marlins logged seven hits and a pair of BB with Justin Bour connecting on his 10th long ball while JT Realmuto doubled in Yadiel Rivera. The Marlins kick off their series at San Diego with Caleb Smith on the mound. Smith has his sights on consecutive wins after upending the Mets 5-1 with a run given up on three hits and two BB over 6.2 frames.
The San Diego Padres look to get back in he win column following a 6-1 road defeat at the hands of the LA Dodgers. San Diego dropped a 6-1 decision where nothing went favorably with starter Matt Strahm tossed two scoreless innings while Adam Cimber allowed two runs in the third and Tyler Webb was charged with four runs in the 8th.
The Padres were limited to six hits with Raffy Lopez cracking a sacrifice fly that plated Freddy Galvis. San Diego has tabbed rookie Eric Lauer as Monday’s starter versus Miami. Lauer threw the ball well in a 2-1 loss at Washington last time out with a run plated on six hits in a six inning stint.
Miami are 2-6 in their last 8 overall and are 2-6 in their last 8 games on grass and are 12-28 in their last 40 road games. Over is 13-3 in San Diego last 16 Monday games and under is 6-2 in San Diego last 8 home games.
Miami really doesn’t deserve to be a road favorite against anybody but Smith seems to be the reason and I agree…
