Oof. 2 in a row, and not in a good way. Your Padres dropped a 2nd game in a row for the 1st time this spring, getting trounced by the White Sox 6-0. RHP Chris Paddack, the Padres’ presumptive Opening Day starter, looked uncharacteristically inaccurate. The Sox took advantage, scoring 4 before Paddack hit the showers, 3 coming off a pair of HRs by the Sox’ Cheslor Cuthbert. Paddack did record 4 Ks with no BBs, so he had that going for him. The Padres batters also couldn’t do much, as they were unable to string together anything on offense, recording only 6 hits and 1 walk on the day.
The Padres will host the despicable, the vile, the absolutely abhorrent L.A. Dodgers today. RHP Garrett Richards will get the start, facing off against the Dodgers’ Alex Wood. We will see if Fernando Tatis JR returns to game action today after battling the flu most of last week. Game info follows:
Start Time: 1310 Pacific time.
Location: Peoria Stadium in Peoria, AZ.
Radio/TV: Padres TV on Fox Sports - San Diego and MLB Network (out-of-market only); radio broadcast on 97.3 KWFN.
Weather Forecast: Sunny, with temps near 72 degrees Fahrenheit at gametime. Winds out of the SE @ 4 MPH.
Not sure if I can get back to post the line-up, so if some one could please post the starting lineup down in the comments, I’d appreciate it.
Go Padres! BEAT L.A.!!!
