MIAMI (AP) — Jose Fernandez struck out 10 and allowed only two hits in a career-high eight innings, and the Miami Marlins matched a season high with their third consecutive victory by beating the San Diego Padres 4-0 Monday night.
Jeff Mathis delivered the big hit for the second game in a row, raising his batting average to .154. He hit a three-run double in the sixth, when the Marlins scored four unearned runs off Jason Marquis.
Mathis’ ninth-inning grand slam beat the Padres on Sunday.
The Marlins began the week with the worst record in the majors, but since June 1 they’re 16-10, and they’ve won six of their past seven games. They’ve allowed three runs in the past three games.
The Marlins will look to take this streak into Atlanta as they face the Braves at 7:10pm ET tonight.
