Jake Cronenworth will have the beginning of the night off, as the Padres are essentially out of postseason contention and could be officially eliminated tonight. Velasquez is making the start on three days rest after pitching just one inning and allowing two runs against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday.

Don Orsillo will be on the call on FOX with John Smoltz and Ken Rosenthal. Gaslamp Ball community, this is the game thread for tonight’s nationally televised game. Enjoy!
