Can the Padres make the playoffs after ending 5-game losing streak?
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Fernando Tatis Jr. matched his career high with four hits, Jurickson Profar homered and the San Diego Padres snapped a five-game skid, holding off San Francisco 9-6 and ending the Giants’ nine-game winning streak.
Adam Frazier got four hits and Manny Machado doubled twice for the Padres, who trail St. Louis by one game for the second NL wild-card spot.
San Francisco had its lead in the NL West cut to 1 1/2 games by the Los Angeles Dodgers, with both teams already assured playoff spots. The majors-best Giants hit four home runs but had their longest winning streak since a 10-game run in 2004 come to an end.
Mike Costa joined KUSI’s Paul Rudy on Good Morning San Diego to discuss their chances of making the playoffs in the middle of a rough second half of the season.
