5/28 Game Thread: Padres (28-26) vs. Yankees (35-18)

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

WHO: San Diego Padres vs. New York Yankees

WHAT: Padres look to bounce back after dropping game 1.

WHEN: Tuesday, May 28, 2019, at 3:35 p.m.

WHERE: Yankee 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: Eric Lauer toes the rubber looking for another quality performance. He’s had 2 of his best outings of the year over his last 2 starts. Keeping them in the yard is critical. He’ll have his hands full against the Yankees powerful offense that hasn’t missed a beat without Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge. On the mound for New York is 30 year old Masahiro Tanaka. Tanaka has 2.15 ERA in the month of May. As the cliche goes, he’s been lights out. The combination of Tanaka and the Yankees formidable offense poses a big challenge to the Padres as they try to grab game 2.
