SAN DIEGO– The Padres will look to wrap up their current eight-game homestand on a high note, as they welcome the AL West-leading Mariners to town for a brief two-game set at PETCO Park.


WHEN: 4/23 (6:30 pm PT with Padres Live) and 4/24 (12:00 pm PT with Padres Live)

HOW TO WATCH: FOX Sports San Diego or FOX Sports GO



SEA Erik Swanson (0-1, 3.38 ERA) vs. SD Nick Margevicius (1-2, 3.60 ERA)


SEA Felix Hernandez (1-1, 4.91 ERA) vs. SD Chris Paddack (0-1, 2.25)

PLAYER TO WATCH: Fernando Tatis Jr.

The 20-year-old enters Tuesday on a 10-game hitting streak, which places him in some pretty decent company:

Over the course of his first 22 big league games, Tatis Jr. has been everything the Padres could have asked for — and more. He is currently sporting a .291/.360/.595 line with six home runs, 13 RBI, and four stolen bases.

Tuesday also marks the 20th anniversary of Fernando Tatis Sr. hitting two grand slams in the same inning, the only time that feat has been accomplished in Major League Baseball history.
