Time to take the series.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Oakland Athletics Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Game three against the A’s is starting soon and it’s another opportunity to show the rest of the majors that this team can hang with the best.

Garrett Richards (1-2) gets the start against right-hander Mike Fiers (4-1). On the road, Garrett has been better than at home, going 1-0 with a 2.82 ERA in four total outings.

News Update

The Padres are sending Luis Campusano to the 10-Day IL with a sprained wrist and recalling RHP Taylor Williams from the alternate playing site. Campusano was a late scratch from last night’s game with wrist soreness.

Starting Lineup

Trent Grisham is pushed back to the leadoff spot and Mitch Moreland is back on first base. In his stead at DH, you’ll get Eric Hosmer. Jason Castro is back at catcher, as well.
