    Padres erupt for six home runs, beat D-backs 9-5
    Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports The Friars made Petco Park history with six home runs on Sunday afternoon. So, that was something. Raise your hand if you predicted anything close to that game? No, put your hand down. Don’t lie.
    In true 2020 fashion, the Padres caught everyone off guard with an offensive explosion in a 9-5 series-clinching victory over the Diamondbacks. This one included six home runs, including two from Manny Machado and another by Fernando Tatis Jr. to increase his stre

    Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports How long can Fernando Tatis Jr. keep this hot streak alive? I won’t sugarcoat last night’s performance. Aside from Fernando Tatis Jr., it was pretty forgettable offensively. I’m not entirely sure where Manny Machado has been most of this season, but it’s gotten to the point where you almost forget he’s supposed to be the “best” player on the team, or at least that’s what his contract would point to.

    Tatis’ pair of home runs not enough in 3-2 loss to D-Backs
    Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports El Nino’s sixth and seventh team-leading were still cool to see, to be honest. Fernando Tatis Jr. made history in an unusual way on Saturday evening when he hit a leadoff home run for the second time in as many games. The super weird part? He achieved the same feat, literally a year ago, on the same two dates.
    In 2019, Tatis hit back-to-back home runs on August 7 and 8. Yesterday and Friday, he did the same thing...on August 7 and 8 of 2020. I don’t
