SWEEP ‘EM!

MLB: Seattle Mariners at San Diego Padres Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

After clinching their third-straight last night with a 6-4 victory, the Padres will now go for three sweeps in a row and nine-straight wins.

Tonight’s pitching matchup pits Yu Darvish (4-1, 1.81 ERA) against Justin Dunn 1-2, 3.63 ERA).

We’ve also got some great news for you on this Sunday!

Wil Myers has been activated off the IL and will rejoin the team for tonight’s game. IN corresponding moves, Brian O’Grady has been optioned to El Paso and Keone Kela has been transferred to the 60-day IL.

Starting Lineup

Today’s lineup is likely a sight for sore eyes. Myers’ return puts the team just about at full strength aside from Manny Machado who remains out. Fernando Tatis Jr. is still in cleanup with your top three being Tommy Pham, Jurickson Profar, and Jake Cronenworth. Victor Caratini will catch for Darvish and Ha-Seong Kim will bat eighth while starting at third.

Enjoy the game! Go Padres!
