Man I hate these late west coast games. It's hard enough staying up that late, but not to be able to watch the game on TV makes it even harder
Anyone know if MLB.TV is blacked out?
Washington Nationals (76-71)
John Patterson, RHP (8-5, 2.74)
Patterson missed his last start against the Mets because of a sinus infection and bronchitis that turned into a slight asthma attack. Patterson said he is feeling better and expects to pitch on Friday night against the Padres at PETCO Park in San Diego. Patterson will be facing the Padres for the seventh time in his career. He is 1-3 with a 3.94 against them.
Jake Peavy, RHP (12-6, 2.93)
San Diego Padres (72-73)
After skipping a turn with shoulder stiffness, Peavy will try to replicate his last effort against the Nationals: a five-hit complete game shutout in Washington on Aug. 7. He went five scoreless innings with pain in the pitching shoulder in his last outing at Milwaukee on Sept. 4 after tweaking the shoulder on Aug. 30 throwing a changeup against the Diamondbacks. Peavy is 7-2 at home with a 2.84 ERA, striking out 119 in 101 1/3 innings.
