Padres aim to inch closer to playoffs in opener vs. White Sox

In April, the Chicago White Sox were favored to win the American League Central while the San Diego Padres were hoping to challenge the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.

While Chicago's playoff aspirations have been dashed, the team comes to San Diego on Friday night looking to delay the Padres' celebration of clinching their first full-season playoff berth since 2006.

Facing the White Sox (77-79) for the first time since 2017, the Padres (86-70) have a magic number of three to secure a postseason berth.
