The Marlins were shut out in their series opener with San Diego Tuesday night at Sun Life Stadium, thanks to some stellar pitching by the Padres

Tim Stauffer stifled the Marlins bats through six innings, giving up a stingy 4 hits to the Fish. The Padres bullpen picked up right where Stauffer left off and scattered just two more hits through the ninth, completing the combined shutout.

Anibal Sanchez allowed two runs on seven hits in his six innings of work. Both runs came with two out in the top of the first. Cameron Maybin singled and stole second base, then scored on Ryan Ludwick's ground rule double. Orlando Hudson followed with another RBI double to put the Pads on top 2-0.

The Padres could have stopped there, but they padded their lead off of the Marlins bullpen. With two out in the top of the seventh, some sloppy defense, including a throwing error by Steve Cishek, resulted in another run for San Diego. 

Brian Sanches would give up the fourth and final run on an RBI single by Cameron Maybin, who didn't play nice against his former club, and the Fish dropped their series opener with the Padres.
