    Edinson Volquez faces off against Edwin Jackson at Petco Park Friday night to open a three-game set against the Cubs. Volquez looks to continue his success against Chicago.  In 7 starts, he's 5-0 with an earned run average of 2.76.

    Cubs starter Edwin Jackson is 7-13 with an ERA of 4.89 this season.  Before signing with the Cubs in January, San Diego pursued the righthander but couldn't agree to terms.

    Padres fans hope Friday will be a repeat of the April 30th game where Volquez and Jackson faced off, Volquez being the victor in a 13-7 game.

    First pitch is at 7:10.
