03/12 Padres Preview: ST Game 15 @ Indians

Christian Petersen

The Padres rallied back from a 5-0 deficit yesterday afternoon to get the victory over the Athletics. Today our boys travel to Goodyear Ballpark in Phoenix to take on the Indians for the second time this Spring.

We'll see Tyson Ross make the start for the Friars as he looks to keep spotless his Spring record so far. In five innings of work over his first two Cactus League outings, Ross hasn't allowed a run or even a hit, though he's issued three walks. He's also struck out four batters in that time. His last time out, he led the Padres to a 6-2 win over the Brewers, throwing three scoreless frames and striking out three.

A lot of the guys who are fighting for roster spots will be in the starting lineup at Goodyear today. Tommy Medica, our Spring Training hero, will bat third and make the start in left field. And yesterday's hot shot, Alex Dickerson, will bat fifth as the DH. Ryan Jackson, who's also had a decent Spring so far, will hit seventh and make the start at short. Then there's Xavier Nady, Alex Castellanos, and Alberto Gonzalez making up the rest of the infield and batting 4th, 6th, and 9th, respectively.

Meanwhile the Indians will send righty Corey Kluber to the hill to face off against our Padres. This will be Kluber's second start, but fourth overall outing, this Spring. In his previous appearances he's gone six innings and given up three runs (two earned). He's allowed four hits, but collected six strikeouts while not allowing a walk.

WATCH/LISTEN:

Guess what. Today's game will be showing LIVE at 1:05pm on MLB Network and MLB.TV! Unfortunately that means no Gameday Audio, no radio, and (I'm guessing?) no At-Bat.
