WHEN: Saturday, April 6th, at 11:15 a.m. PT
WHERE: Busch Stadium
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: The Padres took the first game of the series yesterday afternoon behind home runs from Hunter Renfroe and Fernando Tatis Jr. Today, they look to claim the series with another victory.
For the second day in a row, Andy Green’s squad will feature a rookie starting pitcher making his second career start. Chris Paddack threw five strong innings in his first game, striking out 7 and allowing only one earned run, but left without a decision. On the hill for the Cardinals will be veteran starter Michael Wacha whose first turn of the season was also largely successful but also did not result in a decision.
