Robbie Erlin closes out series in San Francisco as Padres go for the split

Our Padres go for the series split this afternoon after suffering just their third loss in ten tries last night. The series finale pits Robbie Erlin against Giants rookie Chris Heston.

Since San Diego recalled Robbie Erlin from Triple-A El Paso, he's gone 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in three outings (two starts and a relief apearance). He kept opponents to three runs in his two starts, totaling ten innings and collecting six strikeouts. The southpaw, in his second big league season, has gone 0-2 with a 4.97 ERA in two starts against San Francisco this year.

Chris Heston will make his third major league appearance and first major league start in today's series finale. In 28 starts with Triple-A Fresno this season, Heston went 12-9 with a 3.38 ERA.

Have the tissues ready and tune in at 1:05 PT to see if our boys can split the series.
