The MLB is back in action on Saturday as the San Diego Padres take on the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park in Miami, Florida in game two of their three-game series. The Padres will give the nod to Tyson Ross and the Marlins will counter with Dan Straily.
San Diego Padres Form
The San Diego Padres are on the last place in the National League West. They head into the game after the loss on Friday against the Marlins with a score of 4-0. This defeat may be seen as a little surprise as the Padres have been playing well in recent times. The Padres have won seven of their last ten games. They will aim to bounce back from the defeat in game one. The Marlins are one of the teams that are struggling this season and this game will be a good chance for the Padres to improve the overall stats. The Padres have averaged 3.68 runs per game and has allowed 4.32 runs per game on the road so far.
Tyson Ross record against the Marlins stands at 1-2 with a 5.40 ERA in four games. This will be his first start at Marlins Park.
On the offensive side of the game, the Padres have been poor this season as they are placed on the 25th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.95 runs per game, while also being 25th in hitting at .233 and on the 26th spot in homers with a total of 58 so far this season. On the mound, they have some poor states as they are placed on the 19th spot in the league in ERA at 4.28, while also holding the 23rd spot in WHIP at 1.38 and 9th in K’s with 548.
Miami Marlins Form
The Miami Marlins are placed on the last place in the National League East. However, they surprised many as they beat the Cardinals in two of the three games played in St. Louis. They will head into this game after winning the first game of this series with a score of 4-0. It seems that their offence is slowly improving and the results can be seen in the recent games. The Marlins have averaged 3.32 runs per game and have allowed 4.54 runs per game here at home for the year so far.
Dan Straily record against the Padres stands at 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in three starts. Straily is 6-4 with a 3.83 ERA in 20 career starts here at Marlins Park.
On the offensive side of the game, the Marlins have been poor this season as they are placed on the 30th spot in the league in scoring, putting up 3.47 runs per game, while also being placed on the 23rd spot in hitting at .235 and 30th in homers with a total of 48 so far this season . On the mound, they have been poor as they are placed on the 28th spot in the league in ERA at 5.00, while also being 25th in WHIP at 1.42 and 22nd in K’s with 492.
Both of these teams are struggling this season. However, both sides have shown that they are improving in recent weeks. The Marlins were the dominant team in the first game as they swept the Padres with a score of 4-0. However, I think that these teams are very similar and have the same potential and abilities. Nevertheless, I think that the Padres will regroup and win this game. Go for the Padres in this one.
