Tonight is game one of a two-game series in Texas before both teams turn around for a two-game series in San Diego. The Padres (11-12) have been on the losing side of five-straight games while the Rockies (10-10) are coming off a loss to the Rockies.
Zach Davies (2-2) is your starter this evening and he’ll be facing off against right-handed Jordan Lyles (1-1).
Prior to tonight’s game, the #Padres placed OF Tommy Pham (fractured left hamate bone) and C Francisco Mejia (left thumb contusion) on the 10-day IL and recalled INF Ty France and C Luis Torrens.— San Diego Padres (@Padres) August 17, 2020
France is back. Torrens is likely going to swap in and out with Austin Hedges to continue San Diego’s dual-catcher strategy.
