Paddack opened the eighth having thrown 82 pitches. Castro lined the second pitch of his at-bat over the wall in left. Cesar Puello was the first Marlins hitter to reach first base on a throwing error by shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. to lead off the sixth inning. Yadiel Rivera walked with two outs in the inning. Paddack ended the sixth by tagging a diving Miguel Rojas on a close play at first base. The out call was upheld by a replay review of 2 minutes, 29 seconds.
Paddack had struck out seven and walked one entering the eighth. The Padres led 3-1 following the homer. Paddack is pitching for the first time against the Marlins, who drafted him in 2015 and traded him to San Diego the following year.
