Interleague action heads to San Diego as the Red Sox and Padres get set for some Labor Day action.
Boston continues to fight in the AL East while the Padres miserable season continues as they find themselves in the cellar of the NL West.
Boston Red Sox
Boston continues to hold the top Wild Card spot, but they have far more ideas than that.
They trail the Blue Jays by just 1.0 game in the AL East and will look to take advantage of a weak Padres team here this week to pick up some ground.
Boston went into Oakland and put up 35 runs Thursday-Saturday resulting in 3 easy wins. However, Sunday was a different story as the offense had zero production in a 1-0 shutout to see their winning streak come to a halt.
Drew Pomeranz gets the ball here in the series opener, as he heads back to the place where he spent the first half of the season.
Pomeranz was the first big name to get moved prior to the trade deadline, as Boston shipped a lot out for the left.
Pomeranz went a solid 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA over a 6 start span last month.
San Diego Padres
The Padres have dropped 5 of their last 6 and find themselves in what is one of many offensive slumps this season.
San Diego has scored just 19 runs in the 6 game span, as they average just 4.26 runs per game on the season.
The lone bright spot offensively has been 3B Yangervis Solarte. He has homered in 2 of his last 3 games as he enters play riding a 6 game hitting streak.
San Diego sends out Edwin Jackson, who currently sits in a 3.0 game losing streak. Jackson lasted just 2.2 innings while conceding 5 runs on 7 hits last time out.
Since coming over from Miami, the free passes have killed Jackson. He continues to give up multiple in every start, setting the table for the big bats in lineups.
