Tonight starts a 10-game homestand for the Friars.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Oakland Athletics Kiel Maddox-USA TODAY Sports

Game one of three tonight against the Rockies at Petco Park is tonight as San Diego kicks off a string of 10 games at home.

Dinelson Lamet (2-1) is on the mound tonight and he’ll look to add on to his already team-leading 57 strikeouts while simultaneously hoping to minimize additions to his team-low 27 hits allowed. He’ll face lefty Kyle Freeland (2-1).

News Update

The Padres are optioning top-3 prospect Luis Patino back to the alternate training site in order to bring up rookie Jorge Ona who will make his major league debut.

Ona hit .348/.417/.539 through 25 games with AA Amarillo in 2019.

Starting Lineup

Fernando Tatis and Manny Machadi will bat 1-2 tonight while Ona gets the start at DH. Grisham being shifted down to #9 helps keep the bottom of the lineup from being a steep pit in the rotation.
