Jesse Hahn struggled a bit last night but our Padres were still able to come back and get the win to open up the series against Colorado. Tonight they'll try to give Odrisamer Despaigne the same kind of support as the rookie goes for a bounce-back performance after hitting a rough patch his last few starts.
Over his last three starts, Despaigne is 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA. He hasn't gotten a win since notching back-to-back victories in his first two major league appearances. In his most recent outing, he yielded four runs on eight hits while walking three and hitting two batters in 5 2/3 innings against Minnesota.
He'll be going opposite another rookies, Yohan Flande, who is still seeking his first career win. In his first seven major league outings, the southpaw is 0-4 with a 5.77 ERA. He allowed four runs last Thursday en route to a 6-2 loss to the Cubs.
See if our Padres can secure another series win and get themselves that much closer to that second wild card spot. Game time is 7:10 PT.
