05/15 Padres Preview: Game 39 @ Orioles

Denis Poroy

The Padres go for another series sweep today as they wrap up the two-game series against the Orioles. Jason Marquis will try to lead San Diego to its second straight win. Marquis has won each of his last three starts and is coming off his longest outing of the year. He scattered five hits through eight innings of scoreless ball against the Marlins. He only got one run of support in that game, but thankfully it was all he needed for the win. But the Padres' offensive woes have been troublesome lately. Over their last five games, they've hit just .185 as a team while striking out 57 times.

Hopefully they'll fare better today against the familiar face of Freddy Garcia. After spending Spring Training with the Padres and failing to secure a spot in the rotation, Garcia signed with the O's and began the season playing in Triple-A Norfolk. He made his O's debut on May 4th, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning but not factoring into the decision. Today he'll look to earn his first win of the season and improve on an already successful career against San Diego. He is 4-2 with a 2.51 ERA in nine games against the Padres, but hasn't faced them in eight years.
