Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports This one stings. The Padres recorded four runs in the final three innings thanks to a pair of home runs by Manny Machado and Jurickson Profar but it wasn’t enough to overcome a six-run deficit built by the Dodgers as they fell 7-5 in the series finale this afternoon at Petco Park.
Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports This one was close, but the Friars have got to keep their foot on the gas. After a convincing win over the Dodgers on Monday night, the Padres’ bats were a bit quieter on Tuesday afternoon as the Padres lost a close, low-scoring game 3-1 to the Dodgers at Petco Park.
Since returning from the injured list, Emilio Pagan has looked like the elite bullpen arm the Padres acquired in the offseason. For the second consecutive outing, Tony Gonsolin shut down the Padres lineup, pitching 7.0 innings while fanning two and allowing only four hits.
Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports El Flaco was HOT on the mound in Monday’s victory. Dinelson Lamet struck out at least 11 players in back-to-back games and Trent Grisham crushed a solo home run in the sixth to spur a streak of seven-straight runs as the Padres handled the Dodgers in a 7-2 victory on Monday night.
Trent Grisham’s solo blast tied the game for the Padres, and the Dodgers weren’t too happy about his home run celebration in the Friars 7-2 win. Through the first several innings in the Padres matchup with the Dodgers last night, San Diego’s offense was generally quiet as Clayton Kershaw looked like vintage Kershaw.
