Game Thread: 9/5 Padres @ Athletics

Game 2. Let’s go.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Oakland Athletics Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

The Sheriff (3-3), himself, is on the mound today for the Padres (24-16) as he’ll look to continue his bounce-back from his poor midseason form against the A’s (22-13). Left-hander Sean Manaea (2-2) gets the start for Oakland.

Even after recording zero runs against the Angels two days ago, the Friars are still #1 in the majors with 229 runs scored, but that’s just one score over the Dodgers who have 228. The team’s +55 run differential is #2 to Los Angeles, as well.

Happy Saturday and Go Padres!

Starting Lineup

Update: See Tweet above or lineup changes

After a great outing by the San Diego bats last night, the lineup for today’s game remains unchanged. Austin Nola and Luis Campusano are swapping catcher and DH duties but that’s all she wrote for today’s notes.
