Today we’ll have an NL West showdown from Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. The San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks start a four-game set with Game 16 of their regular-season series, and the Pads shoot for their 12th victory over the D-backs in 2022.
The Padres held the final wild-card spot in the National League just a couple of games ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers. San Diego has gone 5-5 in its first ten outings in September, posting a lackluster 5.76 ERA.
Yesterday, the Arizona Diamondbacks managed to avoid a sweep in a three-game home set against the mighty Los Angeles Dodgers. After a 6-0 defeat in Monday’s opener, the Diamondbacks lost 4-0 on Tuesday, notching three hits against Clayton Kershaw and a couple of relievers.
We’ll have an interesting pitching matchup today as Sean Manaea is expected to take the mound for San Diego. Sean Manaea hasn’t started since September 3 and a hideous outing at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The 30-year-old left-hander was shellacked for eight earned runs on nine hits across 4.1 frames, and the Dodgers beat down the Padres 12-1
Manaea is now 7-8 with a 5.23 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and 142/46 K/BB ratio in 25 starts and one relief appearance (139.1 innings pitched) in 2022. He’s been a complete disaster in the second half of the season, racking up an 8.15 ERA and 5.75 FIP through 38.2 innings of work.
Arizona replies back with Madison Bumgarner, who is trying to avoid his second straight loss. The 33-year-old southpaw yielded four earned runs on six hits and three walks in a 4-1 defeat at the Colorado Rockies this past Saturday.
Bumgarner hasn’t emerged victorious since July 23 when he tossed eight frames of a two-run ball in a 7-2 victory over the lowly Washington Nationals. Since then, MadBum has gone 0-5 with a terrible 7.68 ERA and 5.22 FIP in eight starts and 43.1.
