The Miami Marlins, who have also dropped seven of their last eight games, are looking to snap an eight-game home losing streak. Through five innings, they appear on track to do as much, leading the visiting San Diego Padres by a score of 2-0 at Marlins Park.
Miami's scoring came during the bottom of the fourth inning. A triple from shortstop Jose Reyes scored Donovan Solano. One batter later, Carlos Lee singled to knock in Reyes.
On the mound for the Marlins, starter Carlos Zambrano has given up just hit and no runs over five innings, striking out four as well.
