Rain spoils promising Padres early lead against White Sox

The San Diego Padres are rained out after only three innings against the Chicago White Sox

The Padres could have used the rain on Thursday when the Angels caught fire early, and could have done without the rain on Friday. So it goes, after staking themselves to a 4-1 lead against the Chicago White Sox, the game was called just prior to the start of the fourth inning in Glendale, Arizona.

The game - neither results nor statistics - will count in Cactus League play. There are no plans to make up the contest.

Thursday was slated to be Carlos Quentin's debut in spring training, held back by the staff for precautionary reasons as Quentin had been injured at some point in the majority of the seasons he has played in at the professional level. Quentin got 2 plate appearances, getting hit by a pitch and flying out.

Padres starter Clayton Richard pitched all three innings played, giving up the run. The White Sox were slated to start former Padre Jake Peavy, but with rain forecast in the area he instead opted to throw a simulated three innings on the side in order to ensure that he got his work in.


Notes:

While the game Thursday will not be made up, the Padres have planned a "B" game against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday in order to make up for the planned work that would have taken place if not for the rain. The Mariners were also rained out on Thursday. The game will take place prior to the regularly scheduled game for the Padres in Peoria, at 9:00 AM PST. Pitchers scheduled to throw for the Padres in the early contest are Robbie Erlin, Wilfredo Boscan, Thad Weber, Jason Ray, Brad Boxberger, Fautino De Los Santos, Kevin Quackenbush, and Johnny Barbato. The game will not count - neither in the Cactus League Standings, nor statistically - but is designed to keep pitchers in their natural rotations and work schedules.

The Padres will face the Texas Rangers on Saturday in a regularly scheduled contest in Cactus League play, starting at 12:05 PM PST. The scheduled pitchers for the Padres in this game are Eric Stults, Anthony Bass, Brad Brach, Joe Thatcher, and Miles Mikolas. The regularly scheduled games on Saturdays are usually heard on the Padres flagship radio station 1090 AM, but if it isn't there then you can always try 1700 AM, and as a last resort, padres.com broadcasts many games over the internet.

All of this action promised on Saturday presumes that the game isn't rained out, as the National Weather Service is predicting 100% chance of precipitation on Friday evening and tapering to 40% by 11 AM on Saturday.
