The Padres (14-12) are back in second place - tied with the Rockies - and are going for the series sweep tonight against the Rangers (10-13) with Dinelson Lamet on the mound.
San Diego’s bats are hot coming off three-straight games with a grand slam and the responsibility of cooling them down is on the shoulders of right-hander Kyle Gibson (1-2).
Can the Friars make it four in a row? They definitely need to before they have to face the 15-10 Astros in a three-game series at Petco.

Tonight’s lineup is exactly the same as last night’s but LF Jurickson Profar and DH Josh Naylor are swapped in the #7 and #8 spots. Austin Hedges gets his second start in a row, as well.
