WHAT: Padres try to avoid dropping another series.
WHEN: Saturday, August 24, 2019, at 5:40 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: After a blowout loss last night, the San Diego Padres are trying once again to get back on track, this time behind Dinelson Lamet. In his 8 starts this season, Lamet has been incredibly solid for the Friars. His strikeouts per nine innings rate continues to remain above 12. He sports an ERA of 3.95 and an even better FIP of 3.83. Since he made his season debut at the beginning of July, only Cal Quantrill has been a more effective starter for the Padres.
Tonight, Lamet will face a substantial challenge taking on the Red Sox lineup that battered Chris Paddack yesterday. Hopefully, he can do better.
