Smith pitches, hits Marlins to 4-0 win over Padres

MIAMI (AP) Despite taking a shutout into the sixth inning, Caleb Smith was most proud of what he did with the bat.

Smith had an RBI single for his first career hit to help the Miami Marlins beat the San Diego Padres 4-0 Friday night.

''Probably the first hit, definitely more proud of that today,'' Smith said.

Smith (5-6) gave up four hits and two walks while striking out five in 5 1/3 innings. Brad Ziegler pitched 1 2/3 innings including getting an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded in the sixth, Drew Steckenrider tossed an inning, and Kyle Barraclough got the last three outs to finish the shutout.

''I think Ziegler deserves the win tonight,'' Smith said. ''He came in and saved me. He did a great job.''

Smith beat the Padres for the second time in two weeks after giving up one run in seven innings on May 28.

''You see a team the second time almost back-to-back and it's interesting to see the adjustments each team makes,'' Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. ''Their guy (Eric Lauer) threw the ball better against us tonight than he did, really good I thought, but Caleb stayed the same - throwing zeroes, got a big hit.''

Brian Anderson had three hits and Cameron Maybin had two for the Marlins, who have won three of four. J.T. Realmuto, Lewis Brinson, and Yadiel Rivera each drove in a run without a hit.

The Marlins took control of the game in the middle innings scoring twice in the fourth, once in the fifth, and once in the sixth.

Justin Bour walked to open the fourth and moved to third on Maybin's double. One out later, Brinson had a sacrifice fly to get the Marlins on the scoreboard. After an intentional walk to Rivera, Smith followed with his run-scoring single to right.

Starlin Castro drew a walk to load the bases, but Lauer (2-4) got out of the inning by striking out Anderson.

Rivera's two-out walk with the bases loaded in the fifth pushed the lead to 3-0, and Realmuto grounded into a fielder's chose in the sixth to cap the scoring.

Lauer allowed three runs and six hits in five innings. He struck out six and walked a career-high seven.

''Overall, it was back and forth,'' Lauer said. ''There were some good things. There some bad things. Definitely the walks not something you want to see happening. The good thing I look back there were some borderline strikes, (pitches) that could have been strikes. It wasn't some huge misses. It wasn't me all over the place.''

Eric Hosmer and Jose Pirela each had two hits for the Padres.

''We just weren't able to mount a charge,'' Padres manager Andy Green said.

MARLINS ROCK RETRO UNIFORMS

The Marlins wore throwback white pinstripe uniforms with teal hats as part of their 25th anniversary weekend, which included 18 former players participating in Friday's festivities.

''These are good-looking unis, they really are,'' Mattingly said. ''They're a good look. It's what you picture when you think about their teams so it's good to see them out there. I think guys liked them. Actually I think they really liked them.''

Shortstop Miguel Rojas, who remembers watching fellow Venezuelans Miguel Cabrera, Alex Gonzalez, and Ozzie Guillen on the 2003 World Series championship team, was one of the players who enjoyed the uniforms.

''I feel I'm going to enjoy this weekend more than anybody because I really like the colors,'' Rojas said.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Padres: OF Franchy Cordero (right forearm) took batting practice before the game and is looking to make a return soon. ''He should be moving aggressively towards getting back,'' Green said. ''Today is one of the big days for him now.'' Green added Cordero ''probably will'' go on a rehab assignment before returning to the club. ''We'll see how he looks the next few days hitting BP-wise, all his work, and make a determination there,'' Green said.

UP NEXT

Padres: RHP Tyson Ross (5-3, 3.31 ERA) will start the second game of the series on Saturday. The Padres have won each of his last five starts.

Marlins: RHP Dan Straily (2-2, 3.50) will be making his second start against the Padres this season. He allowed five runs, four earned, in 5 2/3 innings on May 29 in San Diego.
