The San Diego Padres (61-70) are trying to snap their three-game losing streak starting tonight in St. Louis against the Cardinals (56-75). Both teams aren’t headed to the postseason, which is where essentially everyone expected them to go when the season began in late March.

Manny Machado, Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado were fighting for the National League MVP last season and were big reasons why St. Louis and San Diego made it to the postseason but all three haven’t been able to replicate their success in 2023. We’ll see how they fare over the next three games.
