MLB: Texas Rangers at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Padres secured the series win last night with a 13-2 obliteration of the Astros. Game three is tonight and many will wonder if the Friars’ smoking-hot bats will finally take some time off.

I truly hope not. This is too much fun.

Zach Greinke (1-0) and Adrian Morejon (0-0) are you starting pitchers tonight.

Can’t stop, won’t stop. Go Padres!

Starting Lineup

San Diego is trotting out a strong lineup through their top six. Josh Naylor is the DH for the night and Luis Torrens will bet the start at catcher.
