What’s a better way to rebound from being swept than by recording your own sweep? The Padres can do that with a victory tonight over the Reds at Petco in front of another home crowd.
Miguel Diaz (2-1, 2.18 ERA) will get the start for San Diego opposite the Reds’ Vladimir Gutierrez (3-1, 2.74 ERA).
Prior to today’s game, the #Padres placed RHP Pierce Johnson on the 10-day IL with right triceps inflammation (retro to 6/18), outrighted RHP Sam McWilliams to Triple-A El Paso, and selected the contract of LHP Daniel Camarena from El Paso.— San Diego Padres (@Padres) June 19, 2021
The Padres are placing Pierce Johnson on the 10-day IL with right tricep inflammation and Sam McWilliams is getting sent to El Paso. In a corresponding move, they selected the contract of pitcher Daniel Camarena from El Paso.
Trent Grisham is getting the night off so Jurickson Profar is starting in center field. Webster Rivas will be catching for Diaz. The rest of the lineup is roughly the same from the past two nights.
Enjoy the game! Go Padres!
