Manuel Margot led the charge offensively for San Diego, opening the scoring with his 12th homer of the year in the fifth, notching two more hits, stealing a base and robbing a home run all in a night’s work.
Chris Paddack was brilliant in what might be one of the final starts of his 2019 season: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K. He’s allowed just one run over his last 18.1 innings, and his season ERA now sits at 3.38.
Seth Mejias-Brean made his major-league debut at first base, and doubled for his first career knock.
Wil Myers’ two-RBI single in the seventh stretched the Friar lead to four and his hitting streak to 11.
The series finale will be Thursday afternoon at 12:40 PM. Dinelson Lamet and Yu Darvish will take the hill.
