(Apologies for the late thread. Our system is experiences some technical difficulties. As you can see, I can’t even get a picture to load now.)

Happy Thursday, everyone. It’s Mike Clevinger’s debut as a Padre so get ready for (hopefully) another stellar performance by this team tonight against the Angels.

The Friars are currently 23-15 and have a 4.5-game lead on the Rockies for second place in the NL West. They’re also #1 in the majors with 222 runs scored, which is nine ahead of the Dodgers for second-most. Their 23 wins are currently the third-most in baseball, tied with the Cleveland Indians.

Enjoy the game and Go Padres!

Starting Lineup

Trent Grisham is getting the night so Jurickson Profar will be replacing him in the leadoff position while Jorge Mateo is replacing him in center field. Austin Nola is back behind the plate while Moreland gets his first crack since being acquired.
