WHAT: Paddack vs. DeGrom
WHEN: Monday, May 6, 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: Padres rookie phenom Chris Paddack faces off with Jacob DeGrom in arguably the best pitching matchup we have seen this season. Paddack has gone at least six innings in each of his last three outings including a 7 innings of one-hit shutout ball against the Seattle Mariners. Degrom, similarly, was outstanding in his most recent start where he threw 7 shutout innings after a rough 3-game run.
San Diego’s pitching staff has not been on the best run, but the offense has picked them up recently after an ugly start to the season. Over the last week, Eric Hosmer, Franmil Reyes, and Manny Machado have been especially good and they will look to keep it going tonight against the Mets.
