As you know, the Padres completed the sweep of the Rockies yesterday and will enjoy an off day today before wrapping up the season with a six-game homestand. The Dodgers come to town this weekend, followed by a three-game set against the Cubbies to conclude the 2011 campaign.
For this weekend’s series against the Dodgers, the Padres will throw Wade LeBlanc, Aaron Harang and Cory Luebke against Ted Lilly, Chad Billingsley and Clayton Kershaw.
To help get you through the day, here is some light reading. Two minor league championships, stellar pitching a mile high and a preview of what’s to come at PETCO Park:
