It took a 9th inning rally, but the Padres managed to come back and start their 2nd winning streak of the spring. Our Padres downed the Rangers 4-3 under the Peoria lights, winning on a walk-off RBI single by Esteban “El Pony” Quiroz. RHP Zach Davies, paired with C Austin Hedges, was dominant during his start: 4 IP, only 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, and 5 Ks. A nice team effort to get the win!
The Padres will travel to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks. LHP Joey Lucchesi will get the start, with LHP Matt Stratham slated to follow. Game info follows:
Start Time: 1210 Pacific time.

I’ll be hanging with my family, so once again, if some one could please post the starting lineup down in the comments, I’d appreciate it.
