The Padres will be in Anaheim to take on the Angels for a two-game set. This will be the first time the pair of teams meet this season. On Sep 7-8 they will meet up once again in San Diego.
Can Musgrove continue his stellar season for the Padres or will the Angels pull off the win? Find out below as we cover this matchup.
San Diego Padres
The Padres have had a nightmare stretch as of late. The team has lost 10 of their last 12 games. Earlier in the year it appeared San Diego would be the contender many thought. San Diego began the year with a 49-33 record but have since gone 19-25.
Despite this abysmal stretch, the Padres are only a game behind the Reds for the second NL Wild Card spot. The biggest reason the Padres are still in a playoff position is their duo of Fernando Tatis Jr and Manny Machado.
Tatis is hitting .287 with 34 homers in 95 games, and Machado has added 22 homers and 84 RBIs. Jake Cronenworth has added 19 homers and 61 RBIs.
On the mound for the Padres is Joe Musgrove. Musgrove is 8-8 with a 3.04 ERA. Musgrove has allowed 105 hits in 139.1 innings. He is coming off an outing in which he allowed a run in 6 innings against Philadelphia.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels have had an up and down season. A big reason they’re out of playoff contention is that superstar Mike Trout has missed the last three months with a calf injury. The Angels are nine games behind Oakland for the second AL Wild Card spot.
Of course they still have superstar and AL MVP favorite Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani has 40 homers and 88 RBIs to go along with 19 stolen bases. As a pitcher, he is 8-1 with a 2.79 ERA.
David Fletcher has also had a strong season with a .298 average. Fletcher has only struck out 46 times in 494 at-bats. Jared Walsh has also played well as he has chipped in with 22 homers and 72 RBIs.
The Angels will go with Jose Quintana. Quintana has had a nightmare season so far with an 0-3 record and a 6.84 ERA in 51.1 innings. In his last outing, he allowed five runs in 1.1 innings against a shaky Tigers team.

San Diego Padres vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction: Angels ML
The Padres and Angels will put up some runs early on. The Angels will do enough late in the game to overcome a shaky outing from Quintana. I expect Ohtani to have a big game here and it will be the difference. Take the Angels despite the pitching edge that San Diego has here.
