WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Cincinnati Reds

WHAT: Padres try to snap a six-game losing streak

WHEN: Sunday, April 21, 2019, at 1:10 p.m.

WHERE: Petco Park

HOW: Watch on FOX Sports San Diego (or FOX Sports Go), listen on 97.3FM The Fan. Spanish broadcasts on FOX Deportes San Diego and XEMO 860AM.

WHY: After getting off to an improbably hot start, the Padres have fallen back to earth with their ongoing miserable losing streak. There remain bright spots even during this week of failure (Fernando Tatis Jr. continues to rake and field his position well) and it is only a matter of time before the Friars get back into the win column.

Today, Joey Lucchesi will be the man we all look to as the Padres try to salvage at least one win from their series with the Reds. Lucchesi is coming off a career-high 7-inning start and gives the team as good a chance of winning as any non-Chris Paddack starter can.
