Starting Lineups

Yu Darvish takes the mound for the Padres as they look to get their first series sweep since June when they take on the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The team is currently tied for the second Wild Card spot with the Cincinnati Reds, posting identical 71-62 records.

After starting pitcher Blake Snell’s heroics last night that nearly led to the second no-hitter in team history, the Padres won consecutive games for the first time since August 8-9.

A win today can keep the momentum riding high before the AL West-leading Houston Astros come to town this weekend for another pivotal three-game series.
