A new series is a chance for a reset.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Arizona Diamondbacks Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports

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).

News Update

France is back. Torrens is likely going to swap in and out with Austin Hedges to continue San Diego’s dual-catcher strategy.

Starting Lineup

Fernando Tatis is now in the #2 spot with Machado back at #3. Recently brought-up Ty France is the team’s DH for the night and Josh Naylor is back in the lineup at #8. Hedges rounds things out at #9.
