07/20 Game Thread: Padres (46-51) vs. Cubs (53-44)

MLB: Atlanta Braves at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Chicago Cubs

WHAT: Our slumping Friars take on the Cubs again

WHEN: Saturday, July 20, 2019, at 11:20 a.m.

WHERE: Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL

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: The San Diego Padres have lost 6 of 7 since returning from the All Star break, and they are turning to Joey Lucchesi to bust the slump. The defense did yesterday’s pitching no favors with two costly errors that were the difference in the game, and that will need to get cleaned up today.

Manny Machado and rookie Josh Naylor both contributed home runs to the effort on Friday, and the offense in general showed up, but they will likely need more today against the high-powered Cubs offense.
