Good afternoon, everyone, and Happy Easter Sunday! I hope you’ve all had a great morning and your now ready to get comfortable and watch your Friars play some ball.
Today is game four of the Padres’ opening series of the 2021 MLB season and they’ll be looking to finish the sweep against the Diamondbacks this afternoon. Coming off a 7-0 victory on Saturday night, all the momentum is with San Diego to get the job done.
Chris Paddack, last season’s Opening Day starter, is making his 2021 debut today and he’ll be looking to continue the team’s winning ways. He’ll be facing right-hander Taylor Widener.
Fernando Tatis Jr. is kicking off today’s lineup with Jake Cronenworth replacing him at second. Manny Machado remains in third and will be followed by Eric Hosmer and Tommy Pham. Jurickson Profar is back in left field and it’s Luis Campusano’s turn behind the plate today.
Enjoy today’s game and Go Padres!
