MacKenzie Gore was very sharp once again Sunday, tossing six innings allowing just one run on three hits and two walks while striking out six. He improved to 3-1 with a 2.06 ERA.
Gore got the start as news surfaced Sunday that Padres starter Mike Clevinger was headed back to the 15-day IL. In the deep and talented rotation of San Diego's, Gore has been as consistent as any and could retain his spot all season.
MacKenzie Gore relieved Mike Clevinger and tossed three scoreless innings, striking out four batters. He earned a hold for his efforts.
Well, we were wondering what was going to happen to San Diego's rotation when Blake Snell returns. Snell is slated to make his return Wednesday. With Joe Musgrove, Yu Darvish, Sean Manaea, Mike Clevinger, Nick Martinez and Gore pitching well lately, someone was going to lose their starting spot. That appears to be the youngster. He has been outstanding for the Padres and knowing that Snell is far from a lock to pitch well, he could find himself back in the rotation at some point. Until then, he's likely to be one of the better long men in baseball.
Padres starter MacKenzie Gore fell to 2-1 in a 6-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs Monday. He tossed five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits with six strikeouts.
Despite the loss, Gore still boasts an impressive 2.42 ERA and respectable 1.23 WHIP for San Diego. It will be interesting to see what the Padres do when Blake Snell returns from the IL. As it is, San Diego has already been rolling with a six-man rotation.
MacKenzie Gore put in another strong effort in the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday night. He pitched 5 2/3 innings, giving up one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out two.
Gore had the bullpen blow his win today. Yet, this wasn't his sharpest outing since being called up, but he was still effective. The Padres lefty might be the odd man out of the rotation when Blake Snell returns from the 10-day IL, but that remains to be seen.
Padres starter MacKenzie Gore looked good once again, striking out 10 Reds hitters in five innings. He allowed one run on five hits, improving to 2-0.
Gore worked his way out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning. After that, he was utterly dominant. The 23-year-old lefty has sparkled in his three starts this year, posting a 20/6 K/BB ratio in his 15 1/3 innings. The Padres will certainly have a tough decision to make when both Blake Snell and Mike Clevinger return from the IL.
