The Padres (18-16) will look to keep from being swept today against the division-leading Giants (20-13). A win today keeps San Diego in step with the Dodgers who also sit at 18-16 on the year. As of right now, the Padres have scored the least amount of runs in the division by 22. At the same time, they’re allowing the second-fewest runs with 119, behind only San Francisco (113).
Tonight’s pitching matchup is between Chris Paddack (1-3, 5.40 ERA) and Johnny Cueto (2-0, 1.80 ERA).
