WHO: San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

WHAT: Padres look to bounce back after dropping game 1 of the series

WHEN: Saturday, August 3, 2019, at 6:10 p.m.

WHERE: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, 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: In 8 appearances (3 starts) since June 23, Cal Quantrill has pitched 27 innings, striking out 22, walking 10, allowing a pair of home runs, and has put up an ERA of 1.67. Only Joey Lucchesi and Chris Paddack have had a bigger impact as part of the Padres pitching staff during that period. Tonight, the rookie will take on the Dodgers lineup and will try to keep pace with Walker Buehler.

Last night, the offense broke out a bit with Wil Myers, Greg Garcia, and Eric Hosmer leading the way. On a night where Manny Machado, Fernando Tatis Jr., and Hunter Renfroe were largely non-factors, they still scraped together 5 runs against the best team in the National League.
