The Padres come to town tonight to kick off a three-game stint in Arizona. Entering the series, the D-Backs and Padres have a mere one-game separation between fourth and fifth place in the NL West. Arizona will look for nothing less than a series sweep against the rebuilding Padres, as the former tries to prove they’re still in contention.
