Rivalry Home Series
In the month of August, the Padres only have four home series. The first is one they are currently involved in, and opened on a super note, by pounding the visiting Atlanta Braves. After more than a week on the road, with trips that take the Friars to Minnesota for some interleague action against the Twins, and a series in the Steel City with the Pirates, the Padres return home to host the injury-plagued Colorado Rockies.
A three-city road trip follows the brief home stint, as the Padres will go to St. Louis for four games with the Cardinals, then back out west for three with Adrian Gonzalez and the Los Angeles Dodgers, followed by thee more in Arizona with the Diamondbacks for basement supremacy.
Finally, after living out of a suitcase for most of the month, the Friars return home for two straight home series to close out August, as the Milwaukee Brewers come to town, a day off, and then a weekend match-up once again with Gonzalez and the Boys In Blue.
That sums up August for the San Diego Padres. Lots going on, and lots more that COULD be going on. This has been your monthly primer for the month of August, for the San Diego Padres!
