Padres Game Thread 5/8/21: Padres @ Giants

No better time than now to bounce back.

MLB: San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Saturday, Padres fans. I hope you’re all enjoy your weekend thus far.

I currently feel like I was hit by a bus due to the second shot of the vaccine so I apologies for not getting a recap of last night up this morning. It was a loss anyway and who ever wants to re-live those? Let’s just move on to tonight game that is also a must-win if the team wants a chance at taking over the division lead anytime soon.

Joe Musgrove is on the mound tonight against 30-year old righty Kevin Gausman.

Team News

The Friars are sending Keone Kela to the 10-Day IL and recalling Miguel Diaz from Triple-A El Paso.

Starting Lineup

Fernando Tatis Jr. takes over the leadoff spot tonight with Trent Grisham and Manny Machado following him. Tommy Pham is back in left field, as well. Austin Nola will catch for Musgrove.

Enjoy the game! Go Padres!
