07/05 Padres Preview: Game 87 vs. Giants

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

Our Padres go for their sixth straight win this afternoon as they continue their series against the visiting Giants.

Newcomer Odrisamer Despaigne takes the mound in game 2 and will try to follow up a couple of brilliant outings to begin his major league career. Over his first two ML starts, Despaigne has pitched a combined 13 2/3 innings, giving up just one earned run on nine hits, earning the win both times out. He made his debut against these Giants in San Francisco on June 23rd, pitching seven scoreless innings while allowing only four hits. His most recent appearance, against the Diamondbacks, was the first in the Padres' current five-game wining streak.

On the mound for the Giants to try to put an end to that streak will be Tim Hudson, who suffered his first home loss of the season two weeks ago when the Padres traveled to AT&T Park. Hudson comes into this contest on the verge of matching a career-worst four losses in four starts. He was a tough-luck loser his last time out after throwing eight solid innings and giving up just two runs last Sunday to the Reds, who went on to sweep the Giants.

Tune in at 4:15 to see if our Friars can extend their streak to six wins.
