Yesterday the Padres fell to the Rangers at Surprise Stadium, but there were some nice offensive highlights. Today they will be back in Scottsdale for another road game against the Giants.

Clayton Richard makes the start for the Friars, marking his penultimate Spring outing. He's coming off probably his best Cactus League outing. Despite giving up two runs in the first inning, he settled in and threw four scoreless innings, allowing a total of five hits and a walk.

Christian Bethancourt will also make a pitching appearance in today's game. In six outings (totaling 6 1/3 innings) this Spring, he has kept opponents to just one run on a solo homer, four hits altogether, no walks, and six strikeouts.

The Giants will give the ball to Chris Stratton for his fourth outing (first start) of the Spring. Through his previous three appearances, he threw a combined five frames, allowing only one run on four hits while collecting six strikeouts.

The game starts at 3:05 pm PT and will be broadcast live on FM 94.9.
