Game 1 Friday, 4:10pm
Ross is coming off of a tough loss against the Pirates. He only allowed two runs in 6 innings. He seems to be getting his walks more under control. He started the year walking a lot of batters and they turned into runs often.
Ross has had great success against the Reds so far in his career. He has a 3-0 record in 4 appearances with a 0.72 ERA and 24 strikeouts. Last year, when he pitched at Great American Ballpark, he went 7 innings while only allowing one run and striking out 8.
Reds pitcher Jon Moscot will be making his major league debut Friday night. Padres hitters should be looking to take advantage of this. The Pepperdine alum has good location but nothing will blow hitters away. Former Padre Jason Marquis was designated for assignment in order to make room for Moscot.
