Padres Get Help from Machado Tatis
The San Diego Padres, even after signing Manny Machado, were supposed to be afterthoughts. But that’s not what they are looking like after they took their record to 10-5 on the season thanks to a 2-1 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.
The win was highlighted by excellent pitching from Chris Paddack and co. and timely hitting. Machado homered in the first inning to give them a 1-0 lead and rising star Fernando Tatis, Jr. drove in the winning run with a double in the seventh to hand them the win and further demonstrate why this team could be a serious contender.
