Padres Game Thread 5/2/21: Giants @ Padres

Big-time game tonight, Friar Faithful.

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Saddle up for a pivotal game three against the Giants that holds the NL West lead in the balance. Heading into tonight, the Padres and Dodgers both hold a 16-12 record behind the first place Giants who hold a half game lead at 16-11. A win tonight for San Diego will give them the division lead for at least 24 hours before the Dodgers start back up against the Cubs on Monday evening.

Joe Musgrove (2-2, 1.24 ERA) is on the mound tonight against the Giants’ Kevin Gausman (1-0, 2.14).

Starting Lineup

Once again, Jayce Tingler leaves the lineup fairly untouched heading into the final game the series against the Giants.

Enjoy the game! Go Padres!
