06/17 Padres Preview: Game 71 @ Mariners

Norm Hall

Our Padres will wrap up their two game set in Seattle today, going for the split, before coming back home for another two-game set against the Mariners in San Diego.

Eric Stults will take the mound and try to turn his luck around. In his last six road starts, he is 0-5 with a 6.75 ERA. He's only faced the Mariners once in his career, in May of 2013, when he kept them to just one run on three hits in eight innings of work while notching a career-high 12 strikeouts.

But even if he can pull off another dominating performance against Seattle, he'll need an improved performance from the offense to get the win. Friars are 3-11 in their last 14 games, hitting .157 and averaging less than two runs per game during that stretch. They may need to count on another rough start from Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias so they can try to take advantage and come out victorious.

Elias is coming off on of his worst outings. He gave up a season-high six earned runs and only lasted 3 1/3 innings during Seattle's loss to New York. The southpaw is 5-5 with a 4.15 ERA in 14 appearances this season, including one complete game shutout.

Catch the game at 12:40 PDT this afternoon.
