If you're not excited for this pitching match up than get excited. A hitters ballpark and two of the best pitchers in the game squaring off against each other.

This is like the Karate Kid, the version with Will Smith's son. Latos was the cool kid back in San Diego, but the Padres take him to Philly where differences in culture lead to him to get picked on. Darren Balsley must teach him the ways of the pitcher but also how to control his emotions. Latos then must face the Phillies in what might turn out to be the fight of his life.

Go Padres!
