The Padres are getting ready for a three-game series against the New York Mets. San Diego is coming off a three-game set against the Chicago Cubs, which they lost two of, but won the last game. This is the final series away from home for the Padres. They will return to Petco Park on Friday to take on the San Francisco Giants.
Jason Vargas (4-5, 4.25 ERA) vs. Chris Paddack (6-4, 2.70 ERA)

What to expect:
The Padres lost two out of the three games against the Cubs but were only one run away. The first two games ended 5-6, cubs. The last game, the Padres took the win with a four-run lead.
The pitching match ups look pretty equal for this series. As far as ERA goes, for today’s game, Paddack has Vargas beat. The rest of the games will be exciting to watch. The bats for the Padres have been hot lately and we hope they continue that streak into this series.
