The San Diego Padres will host the Los Angeles Angels for the third game of a three-game interleague series on Wednesday July 5th at Petco Park in San Diego, California. The Padres will be looking to take the series sweep as they won the first two games. They won 10-3 on Monday, and 8-5 on Tuesday.
For the initial occasion in his MLB career, Shohei Ohtani allowed back-to-back home runs. In the 6th inning of Tuesday’s 8-5 defeat to Joe Musgrove and the San Diego Padres, the Los Angeles Angels’ two-way superstar left the contest with a blister on his right middle finger after giving up long drives by Xander Bogaerts and Jake Cronenworth. Ohtani’s departure occurred just after the Angels discovered that All-Star player Mike Trout will be absent for some time due to a broken left wrist.
After defeating the Angels on Tuesday, the San Diego Padres improved to 40-46 overall. Although it was the Padres’ 3rd victory in 4 games, they had only prevailed in 5 of their past 15 matches overall. They are 6 games behind the National League’s final wild card spot and 10 matches behind the NL West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks.
Wednesday’s game will feature right-hander Seth Lugo, who is 3-4 with a 3.59 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts in 57.2 innings pitched so far this campaign.
Following their loss on Tuesday in San Diego, the Los Angeles Angels’ record now stands at 45-43 for the year. The slumping Los Angeles Angels are 3rd in the AL West, 7 games behind the Texas Rangers and 4 games behind the Houston Astros after their 6th loss in 7 matches. The Angels are additionally 2 games out of the last American League wild-card place.
At Petco Park, Patrick Sandoval will step on the mound for the Angels. In 15 starts and 80.2 innings pitched, he is 4-7 with a 4.57 ERA, a 1.49 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts.
