The Line: Miami Marlins / San Diego Padres -- Over/Under:
The Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres meet Saturday in MLB action at Petco Park.
The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Marlins have scored seven runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Miami Marlins have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring three or less runs. Starlin Castro leads the Marlins with 49 hits and 17 RBI while Brian Anderson and Miguel Rojas have combined for 92 hits and 36 RBI. Jose Urena gets the ball, and he is 3-6 with a 4.11 ERA and 43 strikeouts this season. Urena is 0-3 with a 3.57 ERA and 19 strikeouts in his career against the Padres.
The San Diego Padres look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Padres have scored 10 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The San Diego Padres have won five straight gams when scoring four or more runs. Eric Hosmer leads the Padres with 64 hits and 33 RBI while Manny Machado and Franmil Reyes have combined for 98 hits and 55 RBI. Nick Margevicius gets the ball, and he is 2-5 with a 4.96 ERA and 33 strikeouts this season. This will be Margevicius’ first career game against the Marlins.
The Marlins are 8-18 in their last 26 during game 2 of a series, 1-4 in their last 5 Saturday games and 3-8 in Urena's last 11 starts. The Padres are 6-15 in their last 21 Saturday games and 6-2 in their last 8 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Marlins are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings and 0-4 in Urena's last 4 starts vs. Padres. The over is 4-1 in Padres last 5 Saturday games. The under is 3-0-1 in Urena's last 4 starts overall.
Urena is allowing a 3.09 ERA in his last 32 innings with 18 strikeouts, and he's been better on the road than at home this season. Margevicius hasn't been good through his first 45.1 innings, and that includes allowing 16 hits and 11 runs in his last nine innings. Margevicius also hasn't pitched in a couple of weeks, so who knows what you're going to get when he returns to the hill. Based on the starting pitching edge, I'll go ahead and give the Marlins a shot in this contest.
