As for the Padres, their 68-57 record still puts them in third place in the NL West, 13 games behind the division-leading San Francisco Giants. They are also tied with the Cincinnati Reds for second place in the Wild Card.
The Padres are just 2-8 in their last 10 games after Saturday night’s extra-set win. That slide surprisingly synchronized with the return of Fernando Tatis Jr., who missed two weeks with a shoulder injury. Since returning, ‘El Nino’ â€‹â€‹has reached .260 with three homers in six games.
Tatis will take on Kyle Gibson, one of the surprise breakout arms of the 2021 season and the key acquisition of the Philly trade deadline. This will be Gibson’s fifth appearance for the Phillies – he’s 2-2 with a 4.70 ERA in the top four.
It is scheduled to be 3:40 p.m. AND the premier location of Petco Park. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
