Enjoy the first game of four against the Giants at Petco Park. Chris Paddack (3-4) is on the mound and as I’m typing this he already has two strikeouts through the first inning. He’s facing 32-year old Trevor Cahill (0-0).
Your Padres are currently 11 games over .500 for the first time in what feels like forever. Great bats and an improved bullpen from the beginning of the season has been the recipe for success this late into the season. Including tonight, there’s just 15 games left of this abbreviated season and the Friars are right near the top and a sure-lock for the playoffs.
The top four of the lineup remains the same from the previous series. Austin Nola will be behind the plate tonight with rookie Jorge Ona getting the nod at DH.
