Needless to say, this is a big game for the Padres. They need to put together as many wins as possible in order to keep pace or gain ground as they try to get into the postseason.
So far in this series, the Padres lost the first two games and won the third. Being able to come in and win the final two games of the series would be a huge step in the right direction for San Diego.
In last night's 9-6 win, the Padres were led by Adam Frazier, who came through with a 4-for-5 performance at the plate to go along with two RBIs. For the Giants, Kris Bryant and Brandon Belt both slugged solo home runs in the loss.
With a big game on the line for both teams, the Padres have not announced who their starting pitcher will be. The Giants, on the other hand, will go with Kevin Gausman (14-5, 2.65 ERA) on the mound.
