03/29 Padres Preview: Fowler Park Series Game 2

Our Padres close out their preseason this afternoon with game 2 of their exhibition series at USD. Lefty Eric Stults gets the call for the finale in his final warmup before the regular season, when he'll be pitching 4th in the rotation. Over 17 innings this Spring, the southpaw gave up 10 earned runs on 19 hits and six walks while collecting eight strikeouts. He struggled some in his first three starts, but then turned in two back-to-back strong outings to close out his Cactus League campaign. Over his last two starts, he pitched a combined 10 2/3 innings and kept opponents to just two walks while striking out seven. Stults looks to have better luck pitching at Fowler Park than Matt Wisler, who was hit hard in last night's series opener.

The Indians will also send their no. 4 pitcher to the mound. Danny Salazar will make his third and final start of the preseason this afternoon and he looks to build on his short, but strong, Spring campaign. Salazar kept opponents to just one run on five hits in his previous two starts in Arizona, pitching a combined 5 1/3 innings. He also walked four and struck out five in that stretch.
