Giants vs Padres: Eric Surkamp Looking For Back-To-Back Victories Over San Diego

It’s a great night for a ballgame down in China Basin this evening as the San Francisco Giants host their NL West rivals the San Diego Padres at AT&T Park. The Giants will send out rookie starter Eric Surkamp, who is looking to earn his second major league victory over the team he got his first from last week.

Surkamp held the Padres to three runs in five innings of work down at Petco Park last week, just enough to get the win by a score of 6-4. Hopefully he’ll have some similar success tonight, especially the six runs of support part.

As for the lineup Cody Ross will be back in the leadoff spot playing center field, joined by Carlos Beltran and Brandon Belt out on the grass. Aubrey Huff will play first, Brandon Crawford will be at shortstop, while rookie Hector Sanchez will catch his call-up counterpart Surkamp this evening.
