Padres Game Thread 5/9/21: Padres @ Giants

Gotta stop the sweep!

MLB: San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports

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).

Team News

Ahead of today’s game, the Padres are reinstating Chris Paddack from the IL. In other corresponding moves, outfielder Jorge Ona is being transferred to the 60-Day IL and righty Nabil Crismatt is being sent down to Triple-A El Paso.

Starting Lineup

All the familiar faces in today’s lineup. Victor Caratini will be catching for the newly-reinstated Sheriff.

Enjoy the game! Go Padres!
