Chase Field 6:40 PM PT

Tonight's Pitching Matchup:

Woody Williams, RHP (7-4, 3.60) vs. Brandon Webb, RHP (13-5, 2.99)
Padres (66-64) @ Diamondbacks (63-67)

Scouting Report:
Solid all season, Williams is pitching like a top-of-the-rotation starter again for the first time since 2003 in St. Louis. He has reeled off three consecutive wins, including a seven-inning effort against the Dodgers on Wednesday night at home. williams yielded five hits and no walks, striking out four. In his past three games, williams has given up six earned runs in 21 2/3 innings (2.49 ERA), walking two and striking out 11. His command has been superb as he moves his fastball up and down the zone, showing the expertise of a man smart enough to manage someday if he chooses.

Webb has struggled with his mechanics since missing 11 days with stiffness in his elbow in early August. The right-hander gave up three runs on four hits over five innings on Tuesday against the Giants. Webb has made three starts since returning and is winless.

GO WOODY! GO PADRES!!!:icon_banana:

This team is so inconsistent. They are such a frustrating team to follow. Just when you think they are getting going by sweeping the dodgers they lose 2 of 3 to the Rockies and start the series with the d-backs with a loss. :icon_tease:
