The Miami Marlins and San Diego Padres face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Petco Park. The Padres won the first two games of this series before the Marlins were able to win 8-0. 

The Marlins offense was really struggling heading into Saturday’s games with the scoring, but maybe that is all they needed to take the next step forward and turn around the season. Heading into the 9th inning they were only up 3-0, but it was five runs in the 9th inning that put the exclamation point on the game. Jazz Chisholm has been the top offensive player hitting four home runs and driving in 20 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the San Diego Padres who sit with an 18-10 record overall, but their bats have been a bit cold. Even though the Padres have won two of the three games in this series, the Padres have only scored five runs total. The offense had been strong heading into the game, so the lack of scoring has been a bit shocking.

On the mound for the Marlins is Trevor Rogers who sits with a 1-4 record and an ERA of 6.14. In his last start against the Arizona Diamondbacks, he went 4.1 innings giving up six hits and five runs. 

On the mound for the Padres is Joe Musgrove who sits with a 4-0 record and an ERA of 1.97. In his last start against the Pirates he went seven innings giving up only one run. 

The Padres are 6-0 in Musgrove’s last six starts on grass. The Marlins are 1-6 in their last seven games overall. The under is 5-0 in the Padres last five against the National League East. The under is 4-0 in Rogers last four road starts.

The Padres have won the last six games that Musgrove has started on grass, and that will move to 7-0 in this game. The Marlins bats were ice cold in the first two games, and it’s going to hurt them again in this game. I’m not sure the Padres are going to be scoring six or seven runs, but the Marlins are going to only score a run or two. Back the Padres- 1.5.
