05/10 Padres Preview: Game 38 vs. Marlins

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Our Padres snapped a three-game losing streak last night behind the bat of Jedd Gyorko and the arm of Tyson Ross. Tonight they'll try to hand the Marlins their first two-game losing streak since April.

Eric Stults will try to build on last night's excitement and lead San Diego to consecutive wins. Stults hasn't had the best luck against the Marlins recently so he'll have to overcome that and try to shut them down tonight. He got the start against them on April 4th in Miami, allowing five runs and lasting just four innings on the mound. It was his second straight loss to the Marlins dating back to last June, when he surrendered six runs (five earned) in only 3 2/3 innings. The Padres are averaging less than three runs in each of Stultsy's starts this year, but hopefully last night's offensive explosion can carry over.

While San Diego hitters got some good production going against Jose Fernandez last night, they'll face another tough test in game 3 as Nathan Eovaldi takes the mound for the Fish. This will be his fourth career start against the Padres and first at Petco Park.  On April 6th he got the loss after allowing a three-run homer to Alexi Amarista at Marlins Park. Still, he lasted seven innings and struck out eight batters in that appearance. In his two first starts against the Friars, he kept the offense to one run in 11 1/3 innings.

The winner of tonight's matchup will have the advantage going into tomorrow's series finale. Tune in at 5:40 PDT to see if our Padres can pick up where they left off.
