Marlins Starting Lineup
- SS Miguel Rojas
- 1B Jesús Aguilar
- 2B Isan Díaz
- RF Lewis Brinson
- 3B Brian Anderson
- LF Jorge Alfaro
- C Sandy León
- CF Magneuris Sierra
- LHP Braxton Garrett (2021 season stats: 3.58 ERA, 4.32 FIP, 21.3 K%, 38.3 HardHit% in 27.2 IP)
Notes: For the first time since being traded to Miami, Bryan De La Cruz is not in the starting lineup (he started the previous 11 games)...The most well-rested pitchers available out of the Marlins bullpen are Anthony Bass, Anthony Bender, Richard Bleier, Paul Campbell, Dylan Floro and Zach Pop.
Padres Starting Lineup
- LF Tommy Pham
- 2B Adam Frazier
- 3B Manny Machado
- SS Jake Cronenworth
- C Austin Nola
- 1B Eric Hosmer
- RF Wil Myers
- CF Trent Grisham
- RHP Craig Stammen (2021 season stats: 2.71 ERA, 3.60 FIP, 24.8 K%, 36.9 HardHit% in 63.0 IP)
Notes: Machado owns a scorching-hot .361/.382/.675 slash line since the All-Star break. He’s only one off of Aguilar’s pace for the National League lead in runs batted in...Stammen isn’t stretched out enough to go beyond a couple innings. The Padres will be leaning on a handful of arms to patch this together.
