WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

WHAT: Padres try to bounce back with a win.

WHEN: Saturday, May 18, 2019, at 5:40 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: Last night, Joey Lucchesi pitched 7 strong innings allowing only two earned runs, but it was not enough with the Friars dropping the contest 5-3. Tonight, Nick Margevicius will toe the rubber for the home team as they try to get back on the right side of things with a victory. Standing in the boys’ way will be the Pirates’ Montana DuRapau making his first start of the season. DuRapau’s four appearances this year have all been out of the bullpen.

Franmil Reyes continues to hit bombs. He now sits at 14 on the season. And he is third among Padre position players in WAR behind only Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. The latter still remains sidelined due to injury, but the former two will be needed tonight.
