The San Diego Padres will make the trip north for interleague play against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday July 19, an intriguing matchup as Toronto sits third in the American League East divisions while San Diego Padres look to make gains in the National League West where they sit 4th. This will be Game 2 of a three-game series. The Padres drew first blood on the series in the last game.
The San Diego Padres defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 9-1 on Tuesday evening because of a 2-run homer by Juan Soto and 6 strong innings of relief pitching from Joe Musgrove, who earned his 8th consecutive victory. For the Padres, who snapped a 3-game losing streak, Manny Machado, Gary Sánchez, and Trent Grisham all drove in solo home runs.
This season’s Blue Jays have been enjoying their finest baseball. They’ve swept the Diamondbacks the previous weekend with strong pitching, and they’ve claimed 3 straight series, with one in Detroit. The Jays are 8-2 in their past 10 games and currently hold a 2 and a half game lead for the second wildcard berth.
Jose Berrios will start on the mound for Toronto, with a 8-6 record, a 3.41 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and 105 strikeouts.
A 6-game road trip is about to come to an end for San Diego. They lost 3 of their 4 matches in Philadelphia over this past weekend, and they require a victory run to climb back into the running for the wild card. They are 8 games below this spot. Philadelphia’s hitters were effective, producing 22 runs, while the pitching was problematic. In their past 10 matches, the Padres are 6-4.
San Diego will counter the Blue Jays with Yu Darvish as their starting pitcher for this game. He has a record of 6-6, an ERA of 4.65, a WHIP of 1.26 and 98 strikeouts.
