Anthony Bass takes the hill today, making his second career start as the Padres look to complete a three-game sweep of the Rockies and grab their fifth win in the last six games. Bass’ first career start came in his Major League debut on June 13, also at Colorado. In that game, he tossed 5.0 innings of one-run ball to pick up the win.
This afternoon’s game also marks the final road game of the season, with the team coming home for a six-game homestand (9/23-28) to wrap up the 2011 campaign. The Padres are 35-45 away from home this year.
