WHAT: Can the Padres get on a bit of a winning streak?
WHEN: Friday, May 17, 2019, at 7:10 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: Joey Lucchesi was effective and relatively efficient his last time on the mound throwing 5 1⁄3 innings while allowing only one run. Tonight, the Padres will look for a similar effort as they try to ensure no worse than a split of their series with the Pirates. Former Padre Jordan Lyles will get the start for Pittsburgh as they look to bounce back after dropping game one of the series.
Offensively, the Padres continue to be powered by, well, power. Franmil Reyes hit yet another home run and even the light-hitting, washed up veteran Ian Kinsler contributed with a big three-run blast that ended up being enough to win last night.
