Our Padres will wrap up their series with the Brewers tonight and try to get their first series win since their sweep of the Rockies two weeks ago. Since then, they have failed to put together consecutive wins on the field, making it even harder for fans to watch them on a nightly basis.
But here we are. And tonight we'll look to Odrisamer Despaigne to try to help our team to that series win over first-place Milwaukee. Since going 2-1 with a 1.31 ERA over his first five starts, Despaigne has dropped off. In his last six, he's 1-4 with a 5.81 ERA. In his most recent start, he yielded four runs in five innings against the Diamondbacks in Arizona. He has pitched much better at Petco Park, however. In five games at home, he's posted a 2.45 ERA.
Unfortunately, Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo has also excelled while pitching in San Diego. In four career outings at Petco, he is 3-1 with a 3.16 ERA. And the road has been kind to him even moreso lately, as the righty is undefeated (5-0) with a 1.65 ERA in his last seven away from Miller Park.
The finale will be underway an hour earlier than originally scheduled tonight, so tune in at 6:10 PT to see if our Padres can get it done and send the Brewers home on the losing end.
