The Padres are playing at home and that will definitely help them out quite a bit. The Padres are also putting Lucchesi on the mound and he has done decent for the Padres this season. The Marlins, while they have done decent pitching and will continue to pitch well in this game as Smith is able to shut down the Padres offense for the most part, but the lack of offense for the Marlins is costly in this game. Final Score, San Diego Padres win 3-2.
