  • Padres' Josh Hader: Closes out Game 2

    Hader struck out the side in the ninth and earned the save during Game 2 of the NLCS, allowing zero hits and zero walks in the 8-5 win over the Phillies.

    Hader continued his dominant 2022 postseason in Game 2, needing just 13 pitches to strike out the three Phillies he faced in the ninth and secure the victory. The southpaw earned his fourth postseason save, and he has now tallied 7.1 scoreless innings and allowed only one hit while striking out 10 since the playoffs began. After an outlier regular season where Hader struggled to a career-high 5.22 ERA, the 28-year-old is turning things around in the most important games of the season. Since the beginning of September, Hader has allowed only one earned run over 15.2 innings while striking out 20.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Notches 36th save

    Hader registered a save against the Giants on Monday, striking out one batter over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning.

    The Padres entered the ninth inning up 7-0, so it looked like Hader would get the night off. However, Tim Hill was very wild and gave up four runs while retiring just one batter, creating a save situation for Hader. The veteran closer settled things down with a strikeout of Austin Slater before hitting Joey Bart with a pitch, and he finished off the save by inducing a flyout. Hader appeared to have lost his way throughout much of August, but since the final day of that month he's allowed just one earned run across 12 appearances while racking up seven saves in eight chances and posting a 14:2 K:BB.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Picks up 35th save

    Hader allowed a hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Saturday's 5-2 win over the White Sox.

    Hader pitched around a one-out single from Eloy Jimenez to protect a three-run lead. While he took a blown save in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Dodgers, Hader has still gone 8.2 innings since he last allowed an earned run. He's converted five of six save chances across those nine appearances. The 28-year-old is 35-for-39 in save chances this year with a 5.29 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 80:21 K:BB in 49.1 innings between the Padres and the Brewers.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Blows fourth save

    Hader blew the save during Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning victory against the Dodgers, allowing an unearned run on one hit and one walk while striking out one.

    Hader entered in the top of the ninth to protect a one-run lead and surrendered a leadoff Trea Turner double on his first pitch. A subsequent error put runners on the corners and a two-out passed ball let Turner in to tie the game. The blown save is the 28-year-old's first since Aug. 9, as he continues to pitch to his potential this month despite the poor result Tuesday. Over nine contests dating back to Aug. 31, Hader has permitted one earned run on six baserunners while striking out nine across 8.2 innings.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Records another save

    Hader earned a save against the Cardinals on Wednesday with a perfect ninth inning.

    Hader threw a strike on just six of 12 pitches and didn't fan any batters for the first time in four outings, but he retired St. Louis in order to close out the 1-0 Padres win. The veteran reliever was demoted from the closer role in late August but has since reclaimed the position and successfully recorded five straight save opportunities. Since Aug. 31, he's posted a 1.29 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 7:1 K:BB over seven innings covering seven appearances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Tallies 33rd save

    Hader saved Saturday's 2-0 win against the Diamondbacks, allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    Hader was brought in to face the top of Arizona's order and worked around a Jake McCarthy one-out single to lock down his 33rd save in 36 opportunities. The 28-year-old has recorded a save in four of his last six outings after failing to do so in seven straight appearances and possesses a 1.80 ERA across five September innings. Despite a high 5.84 ERA, Hader has suffered only two negative marks (one loss, one blown save) in 17 appearances since July 22.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Strikes out side in save

    Hader saved Tuesday's 2-0 win against the Mariners, allowing one hit while striking out three in a scoreless ninth inning.

    It took 24 pitches, but Hader was able to protect a two-run lead while recording three strikeouts in an outing for the first time with San Diego. All four batters the 28-year-old faced reached two-ball counts, though he was still able to make it three straight outings without issuing a free pass. Hader has surrendered one run over his last five appearances while converting all three save chances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Clean inning for 31st save

    Hader pitched a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Hader was solid, retiring the side on nine pitches against the Diamondbacks' two most productive hitters of the night -- Daulton Varsho and Corbin Carroll -- as well as pinch hitter Carson Kelly. The save was Hader's second in his last three appearances, though he's allowed one run in three innings in that span in the non-save opportunity. Notably, Nick Martinez pitched the eighth inning Wednesday, earning a hold. Hader's at a 6.26 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 68:20 K:BB through 41.2 innings this year between the Brewers and the Padres. For now, the Padres' bullpen looks like a committee, though it's clear Hader's in the mix for save chances.

  • Padres' Josh Hader: Converts save chance

    Hader allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Wednesday against the Giants.

    Hader was removed from the closer role Aug. 20. Nevertheless, with Nick Martinez unavailable, Hader was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning. After allowing a leadoff single, Hader retired the next three batters to record his 30th save of the campaign and first since July 29. It remains unclear whether this outing will convince the Padres to reinstate Hader as the closer, or if he will have to string together multiple positive performances to see consistent opportunities in the ninth inning once again.
