It will be a bullpen day for the Padres in the regular-season finale, as the team has opted to not let James Shields start on the final day. Garces, a lefty, will only likely work one inning. He's allowed eight home runs in 36 innings.
Kershaw, who already has thrown a league-high 229 innings, is set for a short start, according to manager Don Mattingly. He needs six strikeouts for 300.
