The 2017 season continues for the San Diego Padres as they head to the Windy City to take on the Chicago White Sox in a three-game set.

Series Preview: Padres Host Dodgers in Weekend Set

May 5, 2017

The San Diego Padres begin their second series of the season against the Los Angeles Dodgers on May 5. The last time these two teams met was the four-game series back in April.

The first month of the season is over, and the San Diego Padres have managed to stay out of the cellar.

Padres Series Preview: Diamondbacks at Petco for Three-Game Series

April 18, 2017

The San Diego Padres return home after a seven-game road trip. Only three games have been played at Petco Park so far in the 2017 season, so a little home-cooking should do the Friars some good. They welcome their division rival Arizona Diamondbacks to the city, in what should be a great series. The D-Backs have started the 2017 season well, going 9-5 to start the year. The team from…


Series Preview: Braves Debut Suntrust Park Against Padres

April 13, 2017

Don’t look now, but the San Diego Padres have managed to win some games in this young season. The team presumed to be the worst in baseball is 5-5 after the first 10 games of the 2017 season. This season is still very young, and the pain Padre fans will endure is still ahead. However, this team has been fun to watch out the gate, and they look competitive. After…
