San Diego Padres
The Padres enter this Thursday night pairing sporting a 34-42 record that ranks them dead last in the NL West. Currently 7 ½ games behind the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks, all is not lost for San Diego. Granted, they’ll need a lengthy win streak to get back to a winning record. But considering that they’re currently riding a 4-game winning streak, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be getting it any time soon. This evening’s matchup will mark the 8th time this season these two have squared off. So far the Padres are 4-3 against San Fran, so these two matchup up rather well against one another. The Fathers will be starting Tyson Ross this evening. Ross will be taking a 5-4 record to the mound as well as a 3.51 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Eric Hosmer (9 HR, 33 RBI, .281 BA), Franchy Cordero (7 HR, 19 RBI, .237 BA), and Christian Villanueva (16 HR, 37 RBI, .228 BA).
San Francisco Giants
The Giants tumble into this NL West matchup flashing a 37-38 record that ranks them 3rd in the division. At the present moment, the Giants are 4-games behind the divisional leaders, so they still have a shot at the postseason. Moreover, San Fran only needs a couple consecutive wins to turn their record back onto the winning side. San Fran will be starting Madison Bumgarner this evening. Bumgarner will be vying to get his first win of the season as he’s 0-2 on the year. He’ll also be looking to improve upon his rather large 4.67 ERA and his 1.38 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Brandon Crawford (8 HR, 32 RBI, .315 BA), Brandon Belt (12 HR, 35 RBI, .305 BA), and Evan Longoria (10 HR, 34 RBI, and .246 BA).
