The Padres are on fire offensively and they’re going up against a banged up Braves team that can lay an egg from time to time. Touki Toussaint wasn’t the toughest pitcher in the world to hit last season in a limited role and this is a tough lineup to make your season debut against. I’ll back the Padres on the road.
