Time to quack our way to a series victory.

Time for some DAY BASEBALL, you guys! Bust out your duck calls for Cashner's start and make your quacks heard around the world. Our pal Bobby Cressey aka B Cres will be gently fingering his organ down at the ballpark today, out in the open for all to enjoy. So make sure to tweet him your requests and, more importantly, stop by and say hi to him between sections 311-313; maybe he'll play you a song.

As always, you're welcome/encouraged to join us here in the game thread if you can't make it out to the ballpark today (and even if you can). Tell us your thoughts on the game, how your day is going, what you're having for lunch, etc. And watch these guys go for a series win on this beautiful Wednesday in San Diego:

Today's Lineups

A couple of moves were made this morning to add a little extra bullpen depth after going to extras in back-to-back games prior to an early day game:

But hopefully we can get a strong, deep outing from Cashner and won't even need much help from our relievers.

GO FRIARS!! QUACK THE FAITH!!
