WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
WHAT: Padres can even up the series with a win
WHEN: Saturday, May 4, 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: Joey Lucchesi, owner of the lowest xFIP on the starting staff, takes the mound tonight against the hated Dodgers. Los Angeles counters with veteran lefty Rich Hill making his second start of the year. Tonight’s tilt comes on the heels of a brutal collapse on Friday night in game 1 of the series.
If all goes to plan, the home club can even things up with a much-needed win and set themselves up with an opportunity to take down the series tomorrow afternoon. For that to happen, the Friars will likely need another big effort from Manny Machado whose 6th home run of the season yesterday brought his wRC+ back within shouting distance of league average.
