We don't just have a series win on the line tonight. It's the first series win of the season. AND it's a series win against the Dodgers. Those are some high stakes riding on this game. May Marquis shut down the Dodgers offense and pitch past the sixth inning tonight. And may our Padres continue to show the baseball world that $200M payrolls don't always translate to easy wins.
GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!! BEAT LA!!
Padres winning percentage on April 11th, via Gaslamp Ballmanac: 63.89% (23-13)
Lineups: Carlos Quentin is back in the lineup batting third after an injury scare. Cody Ransom will take the helm at third so hopefully there won't be too many balls hit in that area tonight.
