SP - SD
Padres SP Blake Snell gave his team a chance to win Sunday. He struck out six in six solid frames, allowing just one run on three hits. However, San Diego's offense didn't show up in a 2-1 loss to the White Sox.
Snell turned in another solid performance in his final regular season showing. He missed a little over a month early in the season and really struggled upon his return. But from July on, Snell has pitched at an All-Star level. For the season, he'll finish 8-10 with a 3.38 ERA and 171 K's in just 128 innings. The strong finish will likely land him in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts next year.
Padres SP Blake Snell tossed five shutout innings against the Dodgers stellar lineup. He gave up just a hit with three walks, striking out six.
Nick Martinez immediately blew Snell's win in the sixth inning. The game would ultimately head to extras after Josh Hader blew another save, but the Padres pulled it out on a walk-off walk from Jorge Alfaro. Snell is slated to get one last start next week against the free-falling White Sox.
Blake Snell struck out 13 batters in a 1-0 win over the Cardinals Wednesday. He allowed just two hits and walked two in the dominating start taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning.
After some early-to-mid season turbulence for Snell, he has really found his groove in the second half of the season. After Wednesday's performance, he lowered his ERA to 3.62 to go with 159 strikeouts in just 117 innings. Those are K numbers reminiscent of his glory days in Tampa. He will get at least one more start in the regular season against the Dodgers next week. He could also draw one final start against either the White Sox or Giants to close out the regular season.
Padres SP Blake Snell racked up seven strikeouts in a strong effort Friday against the D'Backs. He tossed seven innings of one-run ball in a 12-3 win.
Snell's up and down season continued as he bounced back with a very strong effort Friday. Despite the relatively lackluster 3.85 ERA, his ability to strikeout batters out at an elite rate makes him a must start. Snell now has 146 K's in just 110 innings pitched this year. He will look for two consecutive solid outings against the Cardinals at home next week.
Padres SP Blake Snell allowed five runs on seven hits and three walks in an 8-4 loss to the Dodgers Saturday. He dropped to 6-9 on the season.
Snell did strike out five batters, but that's about where the good news ends. The up-and-down season continues for the veteran lefty. Next up is a road date with the Diamondbacks next weekend.
