The Miami Marlins are on a remarkable run in which they have scored three runs or fewer in 15 straight games and will look to get their bats ignited at home against the San Diego Padres on Monday.
The Marlins are last in the National League in runs per game at home with 3.7 and have had just one home game in their past 23 that did not go to extra innings in which they scored more than three runs.
The Marlins have the task of trying to end this streak against All-Star Joe Musgrove, who’s allowed more than two earned runs in just two of 10 road starts this season with one of the outliers coming at Coors Field in Colorado, posting a 2.94 ERA with 0.8 home runs and two walks per nine innings.
The Marlins turn to their own All-Star in Sandy Alcantara to turn things into a pitchers’ duel, leading the league with 166 innings pitched with a 2.01 ERA overall, including a 1.80 ERA at home with 0.5 home runs and 1.7 walks per nine innings in Miami this season.
Alcantara has gone at least seven innings in 16 of his past 17 starts and allowed two or fewer runs in 19 of his 23 starts this season.
With the Padres having allowed four runs or fewer in 13 of their past 19 games and the Marlins having had just two of their past 15 games go over the total, a pitchers’ duel appears to be on tap in Miami on Monday.
