Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

As you probably know by now, our Padres are bringing back the brown for this four-game set against the Cubs.

Also, we'll be seeing a very familiar face in the visitors' dugout tonight. No, I'm not talking about Anthony Rizzo. Former Padres coach Rick Renteria will be back at Petco Park for the first time since becoming the manager of the Cubs. Hopefully it won't be a happy return to San Diego.

Unfortunately Renteria will have to wait to see his old friend Bud Black. Buddy is off attending his daughter's graduation, so Dave Roberts will take the helm as skipper tonight. Here's the starting nine Doc Roberts will be working with:
