San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Jason Marquis tossed an eight-inning gem and
the San Diego Padres eked out a 1-0 win to earn their second shutout in a
three-game sweep of the Miami Marlins at Petco Park.
By forcing 13 groundball outs and allowing just two hits over his final five
innings of work, Marquis (4-2) won his third straight decision, with the help
a sacrifice fly from Yonder Alonso. The Padres had just four hits.
Huston Street struck out a pair in the ninth to record his eighth save and
preserve the Padres' fourth win in a row and 11th in 14 games.
Ricky Nolasco (2-4) struck out nine over seven innings, but received zero run
support as the Marlins dropped their sixth game in eight tries, managing just
a single run over the three-game set.
