The San Francisco Giants are in pursuit of a three-game sweep of the San Diego Padres, though that's just the target and not their mission on Friday. They've yet to play the first game of their second-to-last series against San Diego this season, but their magic number for the NL West crown is down to four games. A sweep through Sunday and a single loss by the Los Angeles Dodgers would equal the division crown.
On Friday, Ryan Vogelsong will take the mound, looking to show the Giants' brass that he can be reliable. He's had it tough this season, and will need to put his best foot forward. Casey Kelly will take the mound for the Padres, who are well out of playoff contention at this point.
As far as the rest of the lineup goes, there's not much deviation from the norm here for the Giants. They're staying par the course and you can view the full lineups below. The game is set for 7:15 p.m. PT.
