05/20 Padres Preview: Game 46 vs. Twins

Denis Poroy

Our Padres will square off against a familiar face tonight in the first game of a two-game set against the Twins.

After a 3-3 road trip through Cincinnati and Colorado, followed by an off day yesterday, our boys are back in San Diego for a six-day homestand before hitting the road again. Tonight Ian Kennedy will take the mound to kick off a quick two-game series against the Twins.

Kennedy is still seeking his first home win of the season. The righty is 0-4 with a 4.20 ERA at Petco Park this year. He is coming off a loss on the road in Cincinnati, where he gave up a season-high five runs while his offense failed to score any runs for him - something he's gotten used to. He has the sixth lowest run support average in the majors right now at 2.29. Kennedy has faced the Twins once before in his career, all the way back in May of 2011 as a member of the Diamondbacks rotation. He gave up four runs over 7 2/3 innings.

Pitching for Minnesota will be a familiar face. Kevin Correia will make the start for the Twins and try to turn things around for himself. The right-hander has struggled this season, especially in his last five starts, a stretch that's seen him post a 7.99 ERA while racking up four losses. His most recent outing only lasted four innings as he coughed up five runs and didn't strike out any batters in a loss at home to the Red Sox. Correia is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA in three prior starts against the Padres.

The series gets underway at 7:10 PDT tonight.
