Austin Nola went 1-for-2 with an RBI single and a walk in the Padres 5-1 loss to the Padres in Game 1 of the NLDS on Tuesday.
Nola smacked an RBI single into left field with two outs off Walker Buehler to open up the scoring in the contest. It would be the only run driven in for the Padres on a night when they only mustered three hits. Nola has labored at the plate so far this postseason with a .100/.313/.100 batting line to go along with three RBI across 10 at-bats in four games.
Austin Nola went 0-for-2 with two RBI and a strikeout in the Padres 7-4 loss to the Cardinals in Game 1 on Wednesday.
Nola drove in both of his runs via sacrifice flies in the second and sixth innings, respectively. The Padres got to Cardinals starter Kwang Hyun Kim but were shut out by the Saint Louis bullpen after the sixth inning. The 30-year old catcher has been a bit of a disappointment since coming over from Seattle at the trade deadline. He slashed .222/.324/.381 across 63 at-bats in San Diego in the final month of the regular season.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reports the Padres are in "active talks" for Mariners C/1B Austin Nola.
The Padres have already acquired Mitch Moreland, Jason Castro, and Trevor Rosenthal this weekend. Nola would be a nice get as he's able to both catch and play first base. It's clear that San Diego is rounding out their depth ahead of Monday's trade deadline. They're legit World Series contenders.
