San Diego-Despite worrying about injury at the beginning of the spin, despite struggling offensively at the beginning of the season, despite the total number of MLB leading turnovers-May 1st, the Padres are moving towards the top of the Western Nations League.
Manny Machado hit a third home run in the first inning, and Padres pitcher spent nine innings in a 6-2 victory over the Giants on Saturday night. Hold. Blake Snell ran 2 times in 5 games (won 1 time), and the rest of the games were completed by the lights-out San Diego Bullring.

“This is the best department in baseball,” Machado said. “This is a great department. Everyone plays great baseball and it will be tough. But overall, as a whole, we use it every day. …just worry about ourselves. You don’t Will win the championship in April or May.”
Indeed, the scoreboard for watching the game on May 1st is of little value. But the priests know the value of victory against NL West opponents. On Sunday, they will end nine consecutive games against divisional opponents, and so far, they are 6-2.
“There,” Machado said. “…We can do this in one stop, and once completed, this train will travel a long distance. Therefore, we must continue to work hard.”
As Machado mentioned, the Padres haven’t found enough stable top equipment this season. Recently, they won the game anyway.
Perhaps no one can embody this better than Snell. It used to be the slogan of the former American League Cy Young Award winner. However, although Snell did not complete 6 rounds in any game, he only allowed two or fewer runs per game, but not once.
Snell said: “I did a good job, but there will always be better.” “I just need to study the game more deeply, and that is [about] The consistency of the strike zone. …There is a lot of work to be done. But we will do it, we will get there. I will continue to grow and become better. “
Snell said in frustration that he hasn’t put it together this year-it should be a lot. In the six games in San Diego, the left-hander has a completely respectable 3.51 ERA. He said that was not enough.
Yes on Saturday night. Snell withdrew with a single lead in five games, and Padres’ bullpen continued to dominate. Austin Adams and Emilio Pagán were eliminated in the seventh and eighth innings.
The priest added some useful insurance for the eighth time. Jurickson Profar launched a critical home run, and Kevin Cron then played two more rounds of singles. Those runs prevented the priests from using the closer Mark Melancon for the second night in a row because Pierce Johnson slammed the door violently.
In fact, the Padres have not won as many victories as this season-offense and pitcher are equal responsibilities. Sometimes they rely too much on beginners to carry them. At other times, this burden is too heavy on the bullpen.
Here, however, they won three consecutive victories, tied with the Dodgers, leading first place at halftime-and a new level.
Machado said: “As of April, the bullpen and the pitchers have taken us away.” “I think it’s time to start offense and start doing what we need to do. The last few games…everyone. Struggling hard and starting a synchronized attack. Whenever we are in sync as a whole, it is dangerous.
