The San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants will square off in a divisional matchup at Oracle Park. The two are expected to be playoff contenders this season, and these head-to-head matchups are critically important, even this early in the season.

Last year, the San Francisco Giants won 106 games but lost in the National League Division Series to their rival Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres struggled toward the end of the season after being locked in the playoff picture for much of the year. Both teams are looking to build off of last season. Let's preview the matchup for tomorrow's contest and check out the injury updates.
