The Padres get an unexpected break today when the game scheduled for 7:05 EDT was called early due to rain.
By the Phillies cancelling tonight’s game early today, the Padres were given a chance to rest their overworked bullpen, skip Kevin Correia in the pitching rotation catch a flight out of Phildelphia early today so they can get some rest for their game with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday.
The Padres finish the east coast swing of their road trip 4-2 and arrive in San Francisco with an overall 9-4 record and one game out of 1st place in the NL West.
Padres Ace Jake Peavy and Chris Young are scheduled to start in the 2 game series against the Giants.
