Franmil, Hosmer power Padres to 4-3 win over Braves

Home runs and pitching were once again the name of the game in another Padres win.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Franimal homers twice

Franmil Reyes heard the concerns about the San Diego Padres offense without Fernando Tatis Jr. and silenced them.

Once in the 1st inning to take the lead...

And against in the 6th inning to take the lead again...

Hosmer stays hot

Eric Hosmer has obviously made some adjustments to his swing this season, and after getting a slow start to the season, he’s crushing the ball and hitting it with an angle to get it over the outfield fence.

Hosmer has hit 3 HRs in his last 5 games, and 4 HRs in his last 9 games. He’s back on a pace to be back at his normal 25 HRs this season, an improvement over the 18 he hit last year.

Paddack gets another QS

Before the season started, the Padres made waves by having Chris Paddack and Fernando Tatis on the opening day roster despite neither of them playing in AAA.

30 games into the season, nobody on the roster has looked as good as Paddack and Tatis (with the possible exception of Kirby Yates).

Paddack is going to run into some innings restrictions at some point this season, which might be the only thing that keeps him from winning the NL Cy Young Award in his rookie season if he keeps pitching like this. The numbers he’s been putting up to this point are just ridiculous.
