tv: 4SD
sp: David Wells (3-5, 4.48) vs Sergio Mitre (2-3, 2.75)
pre: Padres.com, SI.com

Welcome to the midway point of the season. After Monday’s night’s contest against the Marlins, the Padres will have played exactly half of their regular-season schedule. They are assured of at least a share of first place in the National League West and will be on pace for no fewer than 92 wins.

After several less-than-stellar false starts with the Cubs and Marlins, right-hander Sergio Mitre is putting up solid numbers in Florida so far this season. He gets the start in the opener against David Wells.

The formula for Wells is always the same: let him throw about 75 pitches, hope he has a lead, and then get him the heck out of the game. On the bright side, Wells appears to be much more comfortable at home (.271/.309/.376) than on the road (.349/.396/.576) in ’07. Here’s hoping that trend continues.

Go Padres!
