At Petco Park
Game time: 10:15PM ET
Probable starters:
PIT: Chad Kuhl (3-7, 4.92 ERA)
SD: Travis Wood (1-3, 6.91 ERA)

Quote:
Continuing their swing through California, the Pirates open a three-game series against the Padres on Friday at Petco Park.

The Padres, meanwhile, remain at home following a four-game set against the Mets. Chad Kuhl will take the mound for the Pirates on six days of rest, and July has been kind to him, as he has posted a 1-1 record with a 3.25 ERA. Kuhl has also allowed just one homer this month.

San Diego counters with newly-acquired left-hander Travis Wood, who came to the Padres from Kansas City in a six-player swap earlier this week. Wood, who posted a 6.91 ERA in 28 appearances for Kansas City, fills the rotation spot vacated by injured Trevor Cahill.

"It's definitely a fresh start for me," Wood said. "I come back, wipe out everything that's happened so far this year and start from now."

This weekend's games will be the final full series across the Majors before Monday's non-waiver Trade Deadline.

Three things to know about this game

• In his last start, at Coors Field, Kuhl gave up a career-high 11 batted balls with an exit velocity of at least 100 mph, including seven hits. One of those, a 117.1-mph double off the bat of Carlos Gonzalez, tied for the hardest ball off a Pirates pitcher in Statcast's three seasons.

• Pirates All-Star Josh Harrison has done well in his career against the Padres. He's posted a .347/.390/.486 slash line in 23 games. But the standout hasn't yet homered vs. San Diego.

• In a limited sample size of six games, Padres standout Wil Myers has struggled against the Pirates, hitting .192 with four RBIs in 26 at-bats.

Not sure what they saw in this guy Hudson. Another scrapheap acquisition I guess. He's awful.
