Lineups -- Marlins/Padres (Monday)


              Jorge Cantu returned to the lineup but Dan Uggla remains sidelined with a sprained left ankle. Uggla did not take part in any baseball-related activities on Monday, but said he hoped to "step it up" on Tuesday. He said he is available to pinch hit.

             Marlins: SS Hanley Ramirez, RF Luis Gonzalez, 3B Jorge Cantu, LF Josh Willingham, 1B Mike Jacobs, CF Cody Ross, C Matt Treanor, 2B Alfredo Amezaga, P Ricky Nolasco.

             Padres: RF Jody Gerut, 2B Edgar Gonzalez, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff, LF Chase Headley, CF Scott Hairston, SS Khalil Greene, C Luke Carlin, P Greg Maddux.


              NO ROOF NECESSARY

              Nothing beats the weather in San Diego, where it is sunny and 70s pretty much every day of the year. They have had two -- count 'em, TWO -- rainouts here over the past 23 seasons. Nothing in the forecast rainwise for the series, either.  Petco

              The Marlins haven't played half-bad in San Diego over the years. They're 26-28 all-time in S.D. and 6-7 at Petco Park. A.J. Burnett tossed one of the Marlins' four no-hitters at old Qualcomm Stadium in 2001, issuing nine walks (but who's counting?) in the process.

             If you ever make it out to Petco, don't miss the fish taco.
