The Buccos look to start a win streak tonight as they take on the Padres in San Diego and hope to take the series from one of the league’s top teams. Hunter Owen will make his first start of the year immediately after being called up, and with JT Brubaker and Yu Darvish on the mound, this looks on paper to be another low-scoring affair. There’s been only five total runs scored in the series between both teams, but if Brubaker can keep it rolling and the Bucs get timely hitting like they did last night, they very well could leave San Diego with a series win.

Let’s go Bucs!
