The Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. On Thursday it was the Padres that secured the 2-1 victory. Both teams only had five hits. 

The Padres come into this game with a 17-9 record overall and they have won three of their last four games. The bullpen has done a good job of closing out games late, and it saved them on Thursday night. Heading into Thursday’s game the Padres had eight straight games where they scored at least five runs. Manny Machado has been the top player for the Padres hitting seven home runs and driving in 20 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Marlins who sit with a 12-13 record overall and they have lost five games in a row. In each of the last four games they have only lost by one run, and they haven’t been able to make the winning plays late in a game. Jazz Chisholm has been the top player for the Marlins hitting four home runs and driving in 19 RBIs.

On the mound for the Marlins is Sandy Alcantara who sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 2.90. In his last start against the Mariners, Alcantara went 5.2 innings giving up six hits and five runs. 

On the mound for the Padres is Yu Darvish who sits with a 2-1 record and an ERA of 4.44. In his last start game against the Pirates, he went six innings giving up eight hits and three runs. 

The Padres are 13-3 in Darvish’s last 16 home starts. The Marlins are 0-4 in Alcantara's last 4 starts vs. a team with a winning record. The over is 8-1 in the Padres last nine games on grass. The under is 4-0 in the Padres last four home games against a right handed starter.

The Marlins have struggled to win games when Alcantara is on the mound against winning games. Alcantara’s last start was awful giving up five runs, and I expect the Padres are going to score at least five runs again in this game. Look for Darvish to have a big game, and the Padres will secure the victory.
