After falling to the Giants and Royals on the road, the Padres are back home in Peoria, where they'll play host this afternoon to the Angels at 1:10 pm PT.

Today's starter will be Luis Perdomo, who's been having kind of a quietly great Spring. His latest outing was arguably his best - five innings, one run and three hits allowed, three strikeouts (though he did also walk three batters). Through 10 2/3 total innings this Spring he's only allowed three runs combined on nine hits and five walks while collecting seven strikeouts.

Offensively, the Padres will have one of their top prospects, Manuel Margot, back in the lineup. For the last couple of weeks, Margot has been sidelined with a sore left knee. Prior to that, he had appeared in six spring training games and making 14 at-bats, collecting three hits (a single, a double, and a triple) with one walk and one stolen base.

As for Anaheim, Ricky Nolasco will take the mound for his fourth Cactus League start. He's pitching to the tune of a 4.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP at this point in the Spring, having thrown a total of nine innings with eight hits and two walks, as well as six strikeouts, credited to him.

Today's game will be available on Fox Sports San Diego, or you can listen to the radio broadcast on KSON 97.3 (HD2) or MLB.com.
