The Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres face off on Thursday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. 

The Marlins sit with a 12-12 record overall but they have lost four games in a row. The loss on Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks was especially disappointing. The Marlins scored two runs in the 8th inning to take the lead, but they gave up two runs in the top of the 9th and were defeated. Each of the last three losses have been by a run. Jazz Chisholm has been the top player hitting four home runs and driving in 19 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the San Diego Padres who sit with a 16-9 record overall and they had won two games in a row before losing on Wednesday. The Padres offense has been strong all season and they have scored at least five runs in each of the last eight games. Manny Machado has been the top offensive player hitting five home runs and driving in 18 RBIs. There have been five different players that have driven in at least 10 runs.
