Preview: For the first game of August, the Florida Marlins will play the final game of a three game series at Petco Park in San Diego. The Marlins, at one game above .500 are in third place in the National League East division. Florida comes into the final game of July 7.5 games behind the front running Atlanta Braves. The Marlins are 24-25 when playing on the road this season. The Marlins have seen Gabby Sanchez bust onto the scene and lead the team in batting, with a .293. Dan Uggla has provided the power, blasting 22 homeruns, knocking in 64 runs and scoring 70 runs; all team leading. Florida is batting .257 as a team, which ranks 19th in major league baseball. The Marlins pitching, led by Josh Johnson have a team ERA of 4.01. Johnson leads the team with a 1.72. Johnson will take the mound for Florida, and opposing him for San Diego will be veteran John Garland.

Garland is 9-7 on the season with a 3.56 earned run average. The 30 year old is coming off a loss to the Dodgers, where he threw 6.2 innings, and allowed 5 hits and 2 runs. Garland is 126 – 109 in his career. The Padres, despite their .252 batting average are in first place within the National League West. San Diego holds a 2.5 game lead over San Francisco at the top of the division. The Padres have used Adrian Gonzalez spectacular season of .296 batting average, 21 homeruns, 66 runs batted in and 57 runs scored and ran with it. San Diego also has the best team ERA in baseball; 3.22.

My Betting Picks: Johnson shuts down San Diego. Florida wins 2-0.
