More Padres Trivia...I'm not finished yet
The Padres, who had once held a 3-0 series lead over the Atlanta Braves in the 1998 NLCS, had seen the Braves win game four following a dramatic Galarraga grandslam. Now, with the series at 3-1, the Padres held a 4-2 game 5 lead when Michael Tucker hit a three-run homer. The homerun was not an ordinary homerun, though. Bochy, in a surprise move, had brought in the game six scheduled starter to pitch in relief in game five, hoping to seal the deal. Who was this pitcher who was supposed to pitch game six and who ended up starting game six?
