Break out the brooms!

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: San Diego Padres vs. St. Louis Cardinals

WHAT: Padres are looking for a sweep in St. Louis.

WHEN: Sunday, April 7th, 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 won the series over the Cardinals with a comeback victory yesterday that was powered by home runs from Austin Hedges and Manny Machado (the latter of which absolutely murdered the ball).

Today, the Friars are looking to break out the brooms and get their first sweep of the season while staying undefeated on the road. They will look to Matt Strahm who is still trying to transition from being a bullpen arm to a full-time starter. His first attempt did not go particularly well which is how he’s sporting a 16.88 ERA. Still, if he can put in a decent effort, the Padres offensive output seems more than capable of carrying the day.
