Game Thread: 9/8 Rockies @ Padres

MLB: Colorado Rockies at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Mike Clevinger’s home debut for the Padres. I’m sure we’re all hoping this start goes in a much better direction than his last one against the A’s.

.....and as I type this (because I’m late, apologies) Colorado’s Nolan Arenado cranks a three-run homer....sigh...

We can only go up from here!

Starting Lineup

Trent Grisham is back at the top of the lineup where he’ll be followed up by Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado. Mitch Moreland gets the start at first base in place of the injured Eric Hosmer while Jason Castro starts behind the plate. Jake Cronenworth gets a much-deserved night off.
