After an emotional win last night, the Padres are back at it this afternoon, looking to even up their season series with the Mariners after dropping the first two games up north. Jesse Hahn will take the ball for the Friars in just his third major league start. He was brilliant his last time out, notching his first major league win by allowing one hit, three walks, and nary a run while striking out seven Mets in six innings of work.
The Mariners will counter Hahn with Erasmo Ramirez, who is coming off a successful performance of his own. Ramirez pitched around three hits and four walks to post five shutout frames against the Rangers last Saturday. He'll have his hands full with the latest murderers row Bud Black has assembled.

Okay, maybe more of a jaywalkers row, but what better time than now for them to work up to some more serious crimes? Slash some hits, steal a few bases, kidnap the Mariner Moose, take him out in the desert, and -- you know what, scratch that last part. A win will suffice.
