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:
