So Long, Rizzo. Padres Start New Four-Game Series Without Slugger

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2011 at 1:50 PM

If you didn't get your chance to see Anthony Rizzo hit a home run at Kino Stadium, you've missed your chance, at least for now. The slugger has been called up to The Show and will start tonight:


Rizzo will make his Major League debut, starting at first base, and, according to Black, will hit somewhere between fifth and eighth in the order.

It figures to be the first of many starts this season for Rizzo.

"We're not bringing this guy up to platoon," Hoyer said.

Rizzo, who was hitting .365 with 16 home runs and 63 RBIs with Triple-A Tucson, flew to San Diego on Wednesday morning to have his sore thumb and the bone bruise in his left hand examined by the team's medical staff.

The hand checked out fine, paving the way for Rizzo's debut.

But there's still plenty of fun out at Kino Stadium. Tonight, the Padres start a four-game series against the Las Vegas 51s. Your pals at the Tucson Weekly are sponsoring Thirsty Thursday, so sodas and Budweisers cost just $1. Tomorrow, the San Diego Chicken will be roosting at the ballpark. First pitch is 7 p.m. and beer sales start at 6 p.m.
