Marlins edge Padres

Chris Volstad did a great job of keeping trouble at arm's length.

The big Florida Marlins right-hander allowed six baserunners through the first three innings Tuesday night, and only one scored. He went on to pitch seven strong innings, leading the Marlins to a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres.

"I thought he got stronger as the game went on," Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "The first couple of innings he was struggling with his command and walking guys with two outs, but then he made an adjustment and started throwing his curveball over for strikes and his sinker got better, which is a good sign from a young pitcher, making an adjustment in the course of game."
