WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

WHAT: Cal Quantrill is still chasing his first win.

WHEN: Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 1:10 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: Rookie Cal Quantrill makes his third career start and the 2016 first-round pick despite a 2.71 FIP has not been involved in a Padres win. Today, he was called up from Triple and will face a Pirates lineup led by first baseman Josh Bell.

The offense has been quiet during most of this series averaging only three runs per game. If they’re to rescue a split this afternoon, they will likely need to do better than that against the Pirates Joe Musgrove. The 26-year-old Musgrove is in his second season with the Pirates and has been successful thus far. He is arguably their #2 starter at this point in the season and it won’t likely be easy to put runs on the board against him.
