The day has come to close out the first four-game set of the season, and the Padres find themselves up 2-1 in the series. Ian Kennedy is ready to bring a second straight series victory to the Friar Faithful before the team faces another NL West rival this weekend.
If you're going to the game today, make sure to say hi to Bobby in the upper deck between sections 311 and 313 as he fills Petco Park with some sweet organ tunes on this beautiful afternoon. Whether or not you can make it down to the ballpark, you can still always tweet him your song requests at @Bobbycressey.
Now, let's see how the teams will line up today:
|COLORADO ROCKIES||SAN DIEGO PADRES|
|Charlie Blackmon - CF||Everth Cabrera - SS|
|Michael Cuddyer - RF||Chris Denorfia - RF|
|Corey Dickerson - LF||Jedd Gyorko - 2B|
|Troy Tulowitzki - SS||Xavier Nady - LF|
|Justin Morneau - 1B||Yasmani Grandal - C|
|Wilin Rosario - C||Tommy Medica - 1B|
|Nolan Arenado - 3B||Will Venable - CF|
|DJ LeMahieu - 2B||Alexi Amarista - 3B|
|Franklin Morales - LHP||Ian Kennedy - RHP|
Looks like another off day for Seth Smith with Xavier Nady getting the start in left and hitting cleanup. Chase Headley is still out as well as Alexi Amarista gets the start at third. Yonder Alonso also gets the day off while Tommy Medica takes over at first base.
GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!! CRUSH THE ROCKIES!!
