Diamondbacks vs. Padres game to be broadcast on Facebook Live
The Arizona Diamondbacks return home Friday to face the NL West opponent San Diego Padres, and their game can be viewed in a unique way.
Facebook Live will broadcast the contest here as the game gets started at 6:40 p.m. MST.
The D-backs are riding a franchise record 13-game winning streak after completing four consecutive sweeps, most recently in Los Angeles against the first-place Dodgers. Arizona enters the weekend with an 82-58 record with Patrick Corbin (13-11, 3.83 ERA) on the mound to go against the Padres’ Jordan Lyles (0-2, 6.71 ERA).
The D-backs are also up seven games in the NL Wild Card picture.
