Game 1 vibes.
As you know, I usually post lineups from the team’s official Twitter account in game previews. I didn’t do so here because the Padres tweeted out a FIFTY-THREE SECOND video where you have to sit through the entire thing (I didn’t) to see the full batting order. I’d hate that if the Cubs did it and I can imagine Padres fans are rolling their eyes at it too. If you really want to see it, click here.
MLB says the Wild Card Series will also be available via the ESPN App for authenticated subscribers to ESPN. ESPN Radio will provide live national coverage of all 2022 MLB Postseason games, including the Wild Card Series.
