Our Padres won their last game with just one hit - a bunt single by Everth Cabrera. Can they get lucky twice in a row, or can the offense manage more than one hit against Tanner Roark tonight?

Today's Lineups

WASHINGTON NATIONALS SAN DIEGO PADRES
Denard Span - CF Everth Cabrera - SS
Anthony Rendon - 3B Seth Smith - RF
Ryan Zimmerman - LF Carlos Quentin - LF
Adam LaRoche - 1B Chase Headley - 3B
Wilson Ramos - C Yonder Alonso - 1B
Ian Desmond - SS Will Venable - CF
Danny Espinosa - 2B Rene Rivera - C
Nate McLouth - RF Jace Peterson - 2B
Tanner Roark - RHP Tyson Ross - RHP

With the recent announcement of Jedd Gyorko's plantar fasciitis, it looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Jace Peterson. He makes the start at second base tonight. Rene Rivera will catch Tyson Ross, as usual. And Seth Smith is back in the starting nine, patrolling right field tonight.

GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!! BRING BACK THE BROWN!!
