Game Thread: 9/4 Padres @ Athletics

A new series brings some new fire.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Padres (23-16) begin a new three-game series with the Athletics (22-12). Both teams are enjoying successful season, with the Friars in second place in the NL West and the A’s in first place of the AL West.

Zach Davies (5-2) is back on the mound for San Diego and he’ll be facing left-hander Jesus Luzardo (2-1).

News Update

We’ve also got some exciting news. The Padres have called up their No. 4 prospect Luis Campusano from the alternate training site and placed a couple pitchers on the IL.

Starting Lineup

Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado are back in the 1-2 spots while Austin Nola bats cleanuo. Newly-brought up Campusano makes his major league debut as the team’s DH. Grisham is also back from his day off and he’ll be rounding out the bottom of the lineup.
