Padres open season against rivals

San Diego opens the season Monday hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers in a 4:05 p.m. start.

Jake Peavy will make his fourth consecutive Opening Day start for the Friars, facing Dodgers starter Hiroki Kuroda.

Opening Day for the San Diego Padres means they’ll be a lot more traffic in the East Village. Before the Padres square off against the Dodgers, local AM sports radio station Double X10-90 will host a free Opening Day Block Party. The party is scheduled from noon to 3:30 p.m. on J Street between 7th and 10th avenues. There will be food live music and a kid’s zone. City officials are encouraging fans to ride the San Diego Trolley into downtown to avoid traffic jams.

Upcoming Padres Schedule
April 6 (4:05 p.m.) – RHP Jake Peavy vs. RHP Hiroki Kuroda
April 7 (7:05 p.m.) – RHP Chris Young vs. LHP Randy Wolf
April 8 (7:05 p.m.) – RHP Walter Silva vs. RHP Chad Billingsley
April 9 (12:35 p.m.) – RHP Kevin Correia vs. LHP Clayton Kershaw
