“Beat L.A”— one phrase Friars fans will most likely find themselves chanting tonight as the Padres a three game series with the Dodgers.
The Padres, who lead the National League West by three and a half games, jump into this homestand following a sweep of the Giants and a spectacular performance by Matt Latos, the Padres' 22-year-old pitcher who one-hit the Giants and drove in the only run of the game. San Diego now leads the National League West by three and a half games.
Kevin Correia takes the mound tonight and the first pitch is at 5:35 p.m. Saturday’s game is already a sellout, so if you’re planning heading to the ballpark Sunday, be sure to grab your tickets quickly.
