National League Preview from The Sports Network



Tuesday, May 7th (All times Eastern)

Miami Marlins (10-23) at San Diego Padres (14-18), 10:10 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Miami - Alex Sanabia (2-4, 4.67) San Diego - Eric Stults (2-2, 5.08)

(Sports Network) - As fast as the offense came for the Miami Marlins, it was gone just as quickly.

After getting shut out in the series opener, the Marlins aim to rebound on Tuesday night as they continue a three-game set with the hosting San Diego Padres.

The Marlins came into the opener having won two straight, including a 14-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. However, Miami had its bats silenced by Padres starter Andrew Cashner over 7 1/3 innings en route to getting shut out for the fifth time this season.

Cashner allowed just four hits and walked three, helping the Padres win for the ninth time in their past 12 games. That moved San Diego a half game in front of the Los Angeles Dodgers and out of the basement in the NL West as well as four games under .500 at 14-18.

"I like the fact that he pitched into the eighth inning and gave our bullpen a rest," Padres manager Bud Black said of Cashner.

Jedd Gyorko hit a solo homer, while Chase Headley drove in a run and extended his hitting streak to 11 straight games. He is hitting .381 over that span with a pair of homers and seven RBI.

Marlins starter Wade LeBlanc lasted five innings, allowing four runs -- three earned -- on four hits and three walks while falling to 0-5 on the season.

Miami had scored just five runs over three games before Sunday's victory over the Phillies and went 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position last night.

"We didn't get it done, and we've been struggling with guys in scoring position. It's frustrating when that happens," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.

A native of San Diego, Alex Sanabia aims to avoid a fourth straight losing start as he takes the hill tonight for the Marlins.

The 24-year-old righty was bested 7-2 in Philadelphia on Thursday, charged with four runs on six hits, two homers and two walks over five innings. Two of the runs he gave up were unearned in the fifth inning thanks to a fielding error and a passed ball.

Sanabia fell to 2-4 with a 4.67 earned run average on the season and the 21st start of his career will be his first versus the Padres.

"I'm definitely excited being back home," Sanabia told MLB.com. "I think we were into three or four starts in, and I was counting the days, every five days, and I was like, 'Sweet.'"

Eric Stults tries to build off a solid outing last time out for the Padres on Tuesday.

Stults has not factored into the decision of his past two outings, though he did pitch well at the Chicago Cubs on Thursday. The left-hander allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks over 6 2/3 innings, left without a decision as the Padres rallied for four runs in the eighth inning to take a 4-2 victory.

"You never give up in this game. ... You keep battling and playing hard," said Stults, who is 2-2 with a 5.08 ERA in six starts this season.

The 33-year-old is 0-1 lifetime versus the Marlins with a 4.50 ERA in three games (2 starts).

Miami won five of six head-to-head meetings last season, including all three at Petco Park.
