After taking the first game of the series, our Padres will try to keep up the momentum and clinch the series tonight. Our lineup will face Chicago's Brooks Raley, who is making his major league debut tonight in place of the injured Matt Garza. He was called up after tearing it up in the minor leagues, earning pitcher of the month honors in July in Chicago's minor league system. His last start in Triple-A Iowa was a rough one. He gave up six runs on ten hits in six innings of work. Overall he went 4-8 and posted a 3.62 ERA for the Triple-A club this season, and tonight he will try to make an impression in his first major league start and avoid the seventh straight loss for the Cubs.

Ross Ohlendorf will try to spoil Raley's debut and lead our Padres to their third straight victory. Ohlendorf is also coming off a rough start in Cincinnati. He exited the game before the end of the 2nd inning after giving up a season-high six runs on six hits and three walks. He's looking to bounce back from that outing and stay undefeated at home. In his two starts at Petco Park, he is 1-0 with a 2.13 ERA. He's also 1-0 in five career starts against the Cubs, so he'll try to keep that record spotless as well.

GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!!
