08/12 Game Thread: Padres (55-62) vs. Rays (69-50)

MLB: San Diego Padres at Seattle Mariners Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Tampa Bay Rays

WHAT: Padres try to bounce back after dropping series finale to Rockies.

WHEN: Monday, August 12, 2019, at 7:10 p.m.

WHERE: PetCo Park, San Diego, CA

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 Padres’ leader in WAR among starting pitchers, Joey Lucchesi, takes the mound tonight as the Friars welcome the Rays to town. Offensively, rookie phenom Fernando Tatis Jr. continues to amaze by playing like one of the best players in all of baseball. Over the last week, however, another Padre has actually been even more productive. Francisco Mejia has hit .625/.625/1.063 across 4 games (putting up more WAR in that stretch than Eric Hosmer and Wil Myers have on the season).
