MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Hello Padres fans and welcome to the start of another series against the Rockies. I hope everyone had a great Monday and you’re now ready to kick back and watch some ball.

The rotation is back to the top with Yu Darvish (3-1, 2.08 ERA) taking the mound tonight against Jon Gray (4-3, 2.93 ERA).

After the sweep of the Cardinals, the Friars will look to continue their win streak against the bottom team in the division.

Team News

Ahead of tonight’s game, the Padres are getting back Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo. In corresponding moves, the team is optioning Ivan Castillo to Triple-A El Paso and returning Patrick Kivelhan to El Paso, as well.

Starting Lineup

Profar returns to the lineup and will start at first base in place of Eric Hosmer who is still on the IL due to contact tracing. Bryan O’Grady is back in right field for Wil Myers (COVID-19) and Ha-Seong Kim will start again at shortstop.

Enjoy the game! Go Padres!
