New kids ready to take on San Diego's old timers

The Brewers enjoyed a wild ride on opening day, beating the San Diego Padres 2-1 in 12 innings on Thursday.

The Brewers are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series, 2-6 in Suters last 8 road starts and 6-0 in Suters last 6 starts. "That's a tough one for all of us".

As per reports, Myers came out of last night's game for a pinch-runner in the seventh inning due to continued back stiffness.

Lucchesi just missed getting through five innings and Makita would have gotten the win if Hand hadn't imploded. Both also split their time between Lake Elsinore and San Antonio last season, and pitched for the Padres in spring training this year, but neither has been as dominant as Lucchesi.

Richard, making his first opening day start at age 34, went seven innings, allowing one run and six hits with four strikeouts and one walk.

Another position we could see Green use Cory Spangenberg at is second base. Green brought on Makita.

Lucchesi was a fourth-round draft pick in 2016. He eventually reached third but didn't score. The San Diego Padres hope to prevent an 0-3 start for the second time in the last three years. Spangenberg hit a two-run homer to left and Austin Hedges followed with a shot to left.

Aaron Judge, hitting second, went 2-for-4 with a walk and a double and Gary Sanchez, hitting cleanup, went 1-for-5 with a double. They had the bases loaded but Eric Hosmer grounded into a double play.

Lucchesi, a Newark, California native, impressed the Padres in spring training, pitching in four games, starting two.

Five Mets had multiple hits, Yoenis Cespedes drove in three runs and Brandon Nimmo and Adrian Gonzalez reached base four times each as the Mets beat the Cardinals, 9-4, on Opening Day at Citi Field, Callaway's managerial debut. He was hit on the right triceps by a liner by Freddy Galvis that went for a single and then hit on the left buttock by a liner by Spangenberg that caromed to first baseman Braun. With a lefty on the bump for the Brewers, Green may lean towards resting Myers in an effort to get Hunter Renfroe (who abuses southpaws) in the lineup. He was 3-2 with a 3.42 ERA in 22 games during six stints with the Brewers in 2017. The Brewers will have RHP Jhoulys Chacin on the mound while the Padres have yet to announce their Friday starter as of this writing. He was 8-11 with a 4.67 ERA past year.
