After last night's solid win over the Mariners, the Padres will play host to the White Sox this afternoon. Tyson Ross looks to throw around 90 pitches in his fifth Spring start. He struggled with the wind his last time out, giving up six runs on 12 hits against the Rockies. But he collected six strikeouts (doubling his Spring total) and issued no walks.
The White Sox split-squad team coming to Peoria will be led by Chris Beck on the mound. This is only his second preseason outing after he pitched three frames in his Spring debut over two weeks ago. He allowed two earned runs on four hits against the Royals. The highly-ranked prospect was moved to minor league camp two days ago, but he'll be back to make start against the Padres today.
Only radio for us today in the 8th to last game before the start of the regular season. The game will be broadcast on ESPN 1700 this afternoon with first pitch set for 1:05pm. You can also tune in via Gameday Audio or At-Bat.
