Padres aim for sweep of Blue Jays

According to STATS
According to STATS

San Diego Padres at Toronto Blue Jays

  1. The Padres (2-0) are the only team with an undefeated record in interleague play this season. The Blue Jays are 1-3 against the NL, but went 13-7 against the NL in 2018, tied for third in MLB.
  2. The Blue Jays lost three of four to the Red Sox in their last series, and are one of four teams (Cardinals, Orioles, Royals) without any series wins during the month of May (Jays are 0-4-2). Their 1-6-1 series record at home this season is tied with the Orioles for worst in MLB.
  3. The Padres' 26-24 record is their best 50-game start to a season since 2010 (30-20). In every season between 2010 and 2019, the Padres had a losing record through 50 games.
  4. Kirby Yates saved all three games for the Padres in their sweep over the Diamondbacks, and he has an MLB-high 20 saves already in 2019 (no other pitcher with more than 15). He is striking out 16.5 hitters per nine innings this season, third in MLB (minimum 20 IP).
  5. Brandon Drury has had three straight multi-hit games, collecting four doubles in that span. The Jays won each of Drury's first six multi-hit games this season but have lost each of the last two. His .257 OBP this season is third worst among 171 MLB qualifiers.
  6. Franmil Reyes is the only Padre to play in all 50 team games this season, and he leads the team with 15 home runs. He is the fourth Padres player all-time with at least 15 homers through 50 team games, and he's the first to do it since Adrian Gonzalez in 2009.
Notes Applicable For Series Dates: 5/24/2019 thru 5/26/2019

The visiting San Diego Padres will be going for the sweep of a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon.

It would be the third time the Padres have swept a series this season, while the Blue Jays have been swept five times.

The Padres won the opener 6-3 on Friday and the second game 19-4 on Saturday with a club-record seven home runs. The Blue Jays resorted to using catcher Luke Maile to pitch a scoreless top of the ninth inning.

"He did a good job," Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said. "He saved an arm in the bullpen."

Maile pitched around a single and a hit batsman and struck out two.

The Blue Jays have lost 10 of their past 12 games at home, where they are 9-18 for the season. They are in a 6-18 funk, and the lack of success at home is particularly puzzling to the manager.

"I don't know why that is," Montoyo said. "Hopefully, it changes."

The Padres have won five in a row.

The series finale figures to be a good pitching matchup with the Padres sending out right-handed rookie Chris Paddack (4-2, 1.93 ERA) against Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman (2-6, 2.81).

Paddack's ERA through his first nine career starts is the lowest of any Padres pitcher in his first nine starts. The rookie is the only pitcher since 1893, when the mound was moved to its current distance from home plate, to record at least 56 strikeouts while allowing 42 or fewer baserunners via hits, walks and hit batsmen through his first nine career starts.

Stroman will make his 12th start of the season. He has faced the Padres once in his career, pitching to a no-decision on July 28, 2016, when he allowed seven hits, one walk and four runs while striking out seven in 6 2/3 innings.

The Padres unleashed their home-run barrage despite the absence of their leading homer hitter Franmil Reyes, who has 15 on the season.

Reyes was given a rest Saturday after playing right field Friday on the artificial turf of the Rogers Centre.

"Factoring in the turf where we are, what he's been through this year from a health perspective with his knees, it was probably wise," Padres manager Andy Green said. "His knees are completely fine right now. But it's probably wise to let him breathe from time to time."

Reyes suffered a torn right meniscus rounding first base on a single in November while playing in the Dominican Winter League.

"The last few days haven't been vintage Franmil," Green said. "Sometimes a day to breathe isn't a bad thing. He'll be available if there's a big moment late in the game."

Reyes was not needed as it turned out.

Hunter Renfroe hit two homers for the Padres Saturday and has three in the first two games of the series, giving him 14 for the season.

Josh Naylor, a native of nearby Mississauga, Ont., started in right field in his second major league game and picked up his first major league hit, an RBI double in the second. He finished 3-for-6. Another Canadian, Cal Quantrill, from nearby Port Hope, Ont., and son of major leaguer Paul Quantrill, pitched six innings to earn his first career win. Paul Quantrill pitched for the Blue Jays and the Padres in his 13-year big league career.
