Tonight we'll see Freddy Garcia make the start on the road as our Padres travel to Scottsdale for a game against the Giants. Garcia's had a rough Spring, giving up ten earned runs in his 6 2/3 innings of work thus far. Tonight he will pitch four to five innings before handing it over to a relief corps of Arturo Lopez, Matt Stites, Kevin Quackenbush, Daniel Stange, Joe Thatcher, and Brad Brach.
San Francisco will send Tim Lincecum to the mound. He has only pitched one other time this Spring, a three run / four hit / 1.1-inning start against the Dodgers. Since then he's been treating a blister on his right hand, but is now ready to get back into action after pitching some bullpen sessions and a simulated game.
