It would've been really cool to get our first sweep of the year in a four-game series against the Rockies. But I guess we'll just have to settle for our second series win. Our boy Cashner has been nothing but nails this season so I can't wait to see how he does against this Rockies lineup tonight.

Today's Lineups

COLORADO ROCKIES SAN DIEGO PADRES
Charlie Blackmon - CF Everth Cabrera - SS
Michael Cuddyer - RF Chris Denorfia - CF
Carlos Gonzalez - LF Jedd Gyorko - 2B
Troy Tulowitzki - SS Xavier Nady - RF
Justin Morneau - 1B Tommy Medica - LF
Nolan Arenado - 3B Yonder Alonso - 1B
Josh Rutledge - 2B Rene Rivera - C
Jordan Pacheco - C Alexi Amarista - 3B
Jorge De La Rosa - LHP Andrew Cashner - RHP

Everth Cabrera is back in the starting nine, hitting at the top of the order, after being scratched with a sore knee last night. Hopefully he can inject some fire into the rest of the lineup. Tommy Medica will make the start tonight in left, giving Seth Smith the night off. And as usual, Rene Rivera gets the start behind the plate in tandem with the Cashner start.

GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!! CRUSH THE ROCKIES!!
