Gameday Thread, #133: 8/31 vs. Padres


Kevin Correia
RHP, 10-9, 5.29


Ian Kennedy
RHP, 8-9, 4.22

Here's to a repeat of last Friday's little slaughter, were we clubbed Correia around like he was a baby seal, while Kennedy one-hit the Padres for seven shutout innings. The resulting 11-5 victory started the Padres' on their current five-game losing streak, so given the results of that last match-up, I'm hopeful we can inflict some more pain on them this evening.

  1. Stephen Drew ss .276
  2. Rusty Ryal 1b .279
  3. Kelly Johnson 2b .276
  4. Chris Young cf .268
  5. Miguel Montero c .279
  6. Mark Reynolds 3b .215
  7. Gerardo Parra rf .244
  8. Ryan Church lf .186
  9. Ian Kennedy p .156

We will, however, have to do it without Justin Upton who is not in the starting line-up for this one. However, Nick Piecoro Tweets, "Gibson doesn't consider Upton's shoulder injury serious. Says Upton has taken swings in the cage and probably will be available tonight." No Adam LaRoche either tonight - the second consecutive game it has been Ryal at first-base instead - not sure what the issue is there.

Won't be about tonight - it's IZW time - but a quick warning. All SB Nation sites will be offline for about 30 minutes, starting at around 11:00 PM EDT, for what is being described as "routine maintenance." Sprankton is on the recap and is aware, so will hopefully get some kind of recap up before the shutdown in question. Fingers crossed this one doesn't go into extra innings!
