06/03 Padres Preview: Game 59 vs. Pirates

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The homestand began with a loss last night in what ended up being the longest game ever played at home in Padres history. Tonight our Friars will try to even up the series behind the young right-hander Jesse Hahn, who came over along with Alex Torres in the seven-player trade with the Rays.

Hahn will be making his major league debut tonight, following a night in which we saw one of the worst overall pitching performances by a Padres staff this season. They had to throw 249 pitches to get through the nine innings, also another franchise record. Hahn went 2-1 in ten outings (seven starts) with Double-A San Antonio this season, posting a 2.20 ERA.

Gerrit Cole will get the all for Pittsburgh and hopes to get the same kind of run support his fellow Bucs pitchers got last night. Cole threw a season-low 88 pitches his last time out, getting his second win in three tries by keeping the Dodgers to three runs in 6 1/3 innings of work. The righty went 1-1 in two starts against San Diego last season. He gave up a total of three runs in 12 innings.

See Hahn take the mound in his first ML appearance tonight at 7:10 PDT.
