The Giants just came off of a series with the Dodgers in L.A., a series in which they lost two out of three. The Padres come off of a series against the Rockies in which they took two out of three and ended their home schedule with the best finish in franchise history.
The Padres’ hitter to watch out for tonight is Tommy Medica, who went 2-for-3, with a three-run home run in last night’s game against the Rockies. Medica is trying to show the organization that he plans to be a mainstay, either in the outfield or at first base. The Giants’ hitter to watch out for will be Pablo Sandoval, who went 2-for-4 last night, with a strikeout. Sandoval historically, has always causes problems for Padres’ pitching, and this weekend should be considered no different.
The Padres lead the season series 9-6 over the Giants, and with one win in this series, will take the season series from the Giants. The last time the Padres and Giants faced off, it was at Petco Park earlier this week, a series that the Padres swept from the Giants, which helped the Dodgers clinch the NL West.
Keep the Faith.
