Padres won't be sweeping in Milwaukee this time around after losing the opener last night, but a series win is still in play. They'll try to keep it in play tonight as Ian Kennedy takes the mound opposite an undefeated Yovani Gallardo in game 2 at Miller Park.
Kennedy has been decent in four appearances this year, but has only received four total runs of support. He took a no-hitter into the 6th inning his last time out before yielding three runs on four hits to the Rockies through seven innings of work. He made two starts against the Brewers last season, going 0-1 with a 6.57 ERA, but tonight will be his first appearance at Miller Park in a Padres uniform.
Gallardo has had the same amount of run support but has been much sharper in his four starts this season. He didn't allow a single run in either of his first two outings and has only allowed two runs in each of his last two appearances. The right-hander is 4-3 in eight starts all-time against the Padres, but just 1-2 with a 7.58 ERA in the four of those starts that took place at Miller Park.
Make sure to join us for the middle game of the three-game set. First pitch is set for 5:10 PDT.
