Milwaukee Brewers at San Diego Padres

When and Where: Monday, June 17, Petco Park, San Diego, Calif., 10:10 p.m. EDT.

After taking a battering at Coors Field, the San Diego Padres hope returning to pitcher-friendly Petco Park will get them back in sync as they open a three-game series versus the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.

Brewers move down California coast after avoiding sweep

Milwaukee (40-31) maintained at least a share of the NL Central lead heading to San Diego after avoiding a sweep of its three-game series at San Francisco on Sunday with a 5-3 victory.

Jesus Aguilar‘s pinch homer in the sixth capped the scoring, and Milwaukee’s bullpen came up clutch with five scoreless innings after Chase Anderson was largely ineffective.

The bullpen is hoping Jhoulys Chacin (3-7, 5.74 ERA) can snap out of his funk and avoid a fifth consecutive losing start as he will be activated off the injured list prior to the game. The right-hander — sidelined by a lower back strain — last pitched May 31 when he was drilled for a season-worst seven runs in 2 2-3 innings of a 9-4 loss at Pittsburgh.

“I’ve been trying to get better and working on stuff, and finally [Monday] I’m going to have the chance to get back and start a game,” Chacin told the Brewers’ official website. “It is a little bit tougher after a bad start, and then the injury and have to wait two weeks.

“You want another chance to make all the adjustments and pitch good. But sometimes things happen and the only thing you can do is try to reset your mind, see what things you did well and try to go from there.”

Chacin has lost six straight road starts since winning his first one at Cincinnati on April 2, posting an 8.20 ERA in those defeats. The righty, who went 13-10 for San Diego in 2017, is 6-2 with a 3.20 ERA in 12 starts versus the Padres.

He is also 10-4 with a 2.12 ERA in 19 career starts at Petco Park.

Manny Machado, who went 10 for 19 with 10 runs scored and a pair of homers in San Diego’s four-game series at Colorado, is 1 for 7 lifetime versus Chacin.
