  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Takes loss in Game 3

    Musgrove pitched 5.2 innings and took the loss during Friday's 4-2 defeat to the Phillies in Game 3 of the NLCS, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out five.

    Musgrove had a nightmare start to Game 3, giving up a leadoff homer to Kyle Schwarber in the first inning and walking the next two hitters, but he was able to escape the first with just one run allowed. The 29-year-old struggled with preventing hard contact Friday -- five of the eight hits he allowed were extra-base hits. Musgrove was pulled in the seventh after allowing back-to-back doubles by Alec Bohm and Nick Castellanos, ending his night with the most runs he has allowed in a start since early September. After quality starts against the Mets and Dodgers in the postseason, Musgrove looked primed to pitch well against the Phillies, but he underperformed Friday. His chances of pitching again in 2022 are up in the air as the Padres trail 2-1 in the series.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Outstanding in postseason tuneup

    Musgrove pitched six scoreless innings against San Francisco on Monday, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. He did not factor in the decision.

    Musgrove got no offensive support while he was in the contest -- all seven of San Diego's runs came in the eighth inning, after the starter departed -- but he was nonetheless in fine form in his final start of the regular season. The right-hander finished the campaign with a flourish, giving up just one earned run while posting a 27:8 K:BB across 22 innings over his final four starts. Musgrove's second campaign in San Diego was even better than his first, as he compiled a career-best 2.93 ERA and 1.08 WHIP along with 10 wins and a 184:42 K:BB over 181 frames. He'll likely get Game 3 (if necessary) in the Padres' upcoming wild-card series.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Walks four but allows no runs

    Musgrove did not factor in the decision against the Dodgers on Wednesday, pitching five scoreless innings during which he allowed four hits and four walks while striking out eight batters.

    Musgrove wasn't at his sharpest in the outing, as he needed 106 pitches to get through five frames and tied a season high with four walks. He twice loaded the bases and allowed at least one baserunner in all but one of his innings, but he managed to escape without surrendering any runs. Musgrove has now given up just one run over his past three starts covering 16 innings, lowering his season ERA to 3.03. That's on pace to be the best of his career, and he can tie his single-season high mark in wins with a victory in his final start of the regular season next week.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Five good innings in no-decision

    Musgrove allowed a run on five hits and two walks while striking out four in five innings in a 5-4 loss Thursday against St. Louis. He did not factor into the decision.

    Musgrove allowed two baserunners in each of the first two innings but managed to get out of each without a run scoring. The lone run came on a Lars Nootbaar solo homer in the fifth. He was removed after throwing just 72 pitches with the Padres leading 3-1. Homers have been a bit of an issue for him since the All-Star break, as he's allowed 13 long balls in 66 innings after allowing nine in 99 first-half frames. His next start will likely be in the middle of next week against the Dodgers.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Submits six scoreless frames

    Musgrove (10-7) earned the win during Saturday's 2-0 victory against Arizona, allowing four hits while striking out eight in six scoreless innings.

    Musgrove spread the damage evenly, not permitting more than one baserunner in any frame, and fell in line for the win once San Diego took the lead in the fourth inning. He hadn't allowed fewer than three runs in his last four starts, during which he surrendered 17 runs (13 earned) in 20 innings. Additionally, the eight strikeouts Saturday are Musgrove's second highest total in his last 13 turns while the win was his second in his last 15. Musgrove carries a 3.16 ERA into his next start, scheduled to come next weekend in Colorado.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Surrenders four runs in loss

    Musgrove (9-7) took the loss during Sunday's 11-2 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk with five strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Musgrove cruised through four scoreless frames but encountered trouble thereafter, surrendering a pair of solo homers in the fifth inning and permitting four baserunners and two runs in the sixth before departing. The 29-year-old fired 57 of 77 pitches for strikes, with a healthy 11 of the swinging variety, but has struggled through two September starts, allowing nine runs and 18 baserunners across 9.2 innings. Musgrove carries a 3.28 ERA and 1.09 WHIP into his next start, scheduled to come next weekend in Arizona.

  • Padres' Joe Musgrove: Shaky in Tuesday's outing

    Musgrove allowed five runs (four earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

    Musgrove snapped a seven-start streak of allowing a home run in his last outing, but the Diamondbacks had no trouble teeing off on him this time. All three of the homers he allowed were solo shots, and he was let off the hook for the loss as the Padres rallied for a walkoff win. Musgrove now has a 3.16 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 152:33 K:BB through 153.2 innings this year, though he's posted a 4.70 ERA across seven starts since the beginning of August. He's projected to make his next outing at home versus the Dodgers this weekend.
