Two left-handers -- Braxton Garrett of the Miami Marlins and Blake Snell of the visiting San Diego Padres -- are set to match up on Wednesday night for the middle game of a three-game series.

The Marlins are 6-4 this year when Garrett (1-2, 4.50 ERA) starts. In two career games against the Padres, Garrett is 1-0 with a 6.10 ERA.

San Diego is 2-8 this year with Snell (1-6, 5.04) on the mound, though he is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in four career starts against the Marlins. What's more, he is 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA in two starts in Miami.

Garrett had one truly awful start this year, allowing 14 hits and 11 runs in 4 1/3 innings against the Braves as he suffered his first loss of the season on May 3.

Beyond that game, Garrett -- Miami's first-round pick in 2016 -- has an impressive 2.68 ERA this year. On Wednesday, he will look for his first win since April 22.

Snell was the American League's Cy Young Award winner in 2018, going 21-5 with a 1.89 ERA while with Tampa Bay. After that season, he signed a five-year, $50-million contract.

Since then, however, he is just 26-32 with a 3.98 ERA, and he is scheduled to become a free agent after this season, his third with the Padres.

Dana’s Pick Over: 8.5 -113
