WHAT: Padres look to take a two-game advantage in 2019’s Vedder Cup
WHEN: Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at 12:40 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: Yesterday, the Padres offense looked more like the juggernaut Mariners offense than the Mariners did. They’ll try to keep that going today with Chris Paddack on the mound against King Felix Hernandez as they try to seize the opportunity to sweep this two-game series.
Paddack is still chasing his first win as a major leaguer, but that is not for lack of impressive performances. This is the first time Paddack has faced the Mariners in a game that actually counts, but not the first time he has faced them. He actually learned he would break camp with the big league team while on the mound facing them in the Spring.
Here’s to hoping the Padres and Paddack can keep things going the right direction this afternoon.
